This time I will comment a Milton's input; What Milton attempts is
admirable but totally disconnected from reality, while what the IETF
achieved is a disconnected reality. What might be said is that IETF
has created is a technology. What Milton's fights for is democracy.
Both are out of the reality for a very simple reason: there are
billions of technologies at the exterior of the precise IETF
technology, and democracy is by necessity an interior issue since it
is organized by a constitution.
Multistakeholderism is about organizing together the ulterior, the
virtual, i.e. artificial space where the US wants to be the Empire
and no more an island off the unique authoritative ISO ruled continent.
There is only a way to organize a democratic internet: it is that the
US colonizes the cyberspace. They try doing it through
"globlization", i.e. pretenting that this is MS, i.e. the conceptual
opposite to democracy ("we hate king, presidents, and votes, we only
believe in running code and living mode" [cf. IUCG]: we concert our
individial sovereign decisions).
There is a way to organize a multitechnology internet, it is to
complete Vint Cerf's project: VGNs at the presentation layer level.
As JFC says "the networks of the network of networks".
This is an MS world where everyone from ICANN to me (I am strictly
*analyzing* the proposition, no more) is the VGNIC of their own VGN,
associated in the polycratic Digital Name Services Association
pragmatically inspired from the Milton's democratic propoistion. The
relation between ICANN and the DNSA is simple: ICANN is one among
inter DNSA pares.
I am just floating the way I analyze VGNs, to see the comments.
