The UN and the Internet

The UN wants to take your internet, acccording to Wired News.

Who’s in charge?: A U.N. panel created to recommend how the internet should be run in the future has failed to reach consensus but did agree that no single country should dominate.

The United States stated two weeks ago that it intended to maintain control over the computers that serve as the internet’s principal traffic cops.

In a report, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November “Information Society” summit.

Some countries were satisfied with the current arrangement, while others, particularly developing ones, wanted to wrest control from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which is controlled by the United States, and place it with an intergovernmental group, possibly under the United Nations.

I’m not interested in the UN getting involved with anything that has to do with me.
