From Slashdot:

"The battle for the control of the internet could hit a climax next month, with the EU saying that it could 'fall apart.' From the article: 'The European commission is warning that if a deal cannot be reached at a meeting in Tunisia next month the internet will split apart. At issue is the role of the US government in overseeing the internet's address structure, called the domain name system (DNS), which enables communication between the world's computers. It is managed by the California-based, not-for-profit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) under contract to the US department of commerce.'"

First they were bitching about GPS now the Internet . . .

Sure it’s a great technology, and sure it helps everyone around the world. But the US invented the Internet. The US has control over the DNS servers and has footed the bill to keep them running . . . I really don’t think having a root DNS server in Latvia would be a great idea. Furthermore having the UN control DNS would result in a network built by committee, which I have NEVER seen work as well as a network designed by one or two professionals.

I guess they are going to reinvent TCP/IP too. After all the US military invented that.
