    One also wonders if this [windley.com] recent talk by Vint was ICANN related, other than at the end, when he asserts that ICANN ain't broke so doesn't need fixing (IE: being denutted by the ITU).

    Many of the areas Vint gives as trouble spots and challenges aren't properly within ICANN's purview by any stretch, which hasn't stopped them from meddling in those areas (most often with net negative consequences). Many of the other areas he lists are within ICANN's proper purview and here in many cases they have been at best very late to the party and at worst are still ignoring those areas (both again usually causing net negative consequences). ICANN is most assuredly broke (other than in a monetary sense).

    I haven't been a fan of Vint Cerf since soon after ICANN's birth. So he co-invented a protocol long since. He just doesn't get it. It's like digging up Alexander Graham Bell and asking him to tek your cellphone. -g

    Cerf isn't universally revered by the Slashdot crowd [slashdot.org] either.

    I'm trying to stay away from new, or any, Papist references, but I don't know which is more bizarre, communicating by smoke signals in the 21st century (all of which were initially misunderstood by at least some of the recipients err... was that a 1 or a 0?), or spending somewhat limited braincycles on interplanetary internet communication schemes (with whom? err... was that a 0 or a 0?). Earth to Vint, with the terran net tearing apart under your watch, working on theoretically being able to one day ping Pluto seems rather absurd. Does ICANN have a recall or impeachment provision? -g
