The US and it's tax payers created the Internet, and we've
done a great job.
But we are living in a global economy that heavily relies on
Other countries have reservations about the US's supreme control
architecture and governing rules. I think to ensure the stability
worlds economy, the United States should share it's power over
of the Internet, but at the same time keep significant control
over it (We
have done a great job, we also are the only ones with the experience!).
specific suggestion is to create a world body (outside of the
that mimics the US govt(Hey...it works!). Have an Executive,
Legislative, and a Judiciary branch. The US should keep control
executive branch of the body until such time that the world
is in a place
where the spirit of the Internet can be insured. Each country
should have a
representative in the "House", and the "Senate" should
be filled with people
that have been selected via a division 100 regions of the world.
judiciary should be filled with 1 member of each of the G8,
Australia, and two of the most developed nations in Africa
and one member
from South America (13 total). I call this System The Net Democracy,
To be an "elected" member of the NetDem, you must
have a degree relating to
computer science and worked in the field for at least 10 years,
experience (@least 10 years) in deploying and maintaining large
1000+ Network Nodes).
I think to have a good transition from the current system,
upgrade to IPv6 would allow for more room in error while the
would get acclimated.
Just an afterthought, but an Internet bill of rights wouldn't
be a bad thing
either. (If you want the US to share the power over the Internet,
allow your citizens to do the freedom of speech
Also, living in the digital world we do, privacy protection
would be a great
thing. Make all registrars make all new and renewed registrations
My name, home address, and phone number are a nice starting
identity theft. This should be compulsory and ZERO consumer
really not that hard to implement) or revoke their registrars
These are my Ideas.
