    Remember Esther Dyson's Three Main Comments ?

    Remember Esther Dyson's Three Main Comments ?
    (at the start of ICANN)

    1. "Is it an important job ?" (in conjunction with her IBM deal)

    2. "This is going to take a long time." (How did she know ? or was that the plan)

    3. "I like to travel." (It seems that is the future for
    all Internet politicos, travel on lavish expense
    accounts, at the taxpayer's expense)

    Welcome to Internet "Government"

    "A Secure and Stable Internet" - So far nobody has managed to define those words.

    A "secure Internet" - Is it to be security at any price no matter how much it infringes on free speech or freedom of association? Some of the techniques of security could make the net very hard to use, very slow, or very expensive. Who is going to determine whether the costs of security are worth the gains? Should it be an ICANN that has a history of systematic exclusion of individuals?

    As for a "stable Internet" - haven't we seen how far ICANN can stretch that rubber band - The notion that "stability" has required the UDRP is laughable, but that's ICANN's justification.

    One can only wonder at the new excuses that ICANN will create out of these slippery words "security" and "stability"

    For ICANN Stable Means No Change

    Unfortunately, trying to get the Internet to stop
    changing would be like trying to make all waves
    flat on the ocean. ICANN's solution of course is
    to drain the ocean, then the waves will not be
    a problem.

    ICANN was a "sly political move" ????
    by Anonymous on Saturday November 10 2001, @02:13AM (#3506)

    It's different now for ICANN. What started out as your typical
    ritual White House privatization effort; one that parroted the young
    Clintonites' "Agenda for Action" of 1993; the Al Gore "Information
    Superhighway" speech; that provided a last hurrah for Clinton advisor
    Magaziner at the end of the second term. A sly political move that
    solved, or maybe solved, the National Science Foundation's honest
    mistake in giving Network Solutions and SAIC a billion dollar
    monopoly. That is not the ICANN of post-Sept 11.

    Other people involved with ICANN were NOT IMPORTAN

    According to Mike Roberts

    "Important people are watching, people who have the ability to
    nationalize you overnight if you're not carrying your weight in
    making the Internet more secure. The Japanese government and the
    United States government are sending cabinet level officers to speak
    at the November ICANN meeting about how serious this really is."

    "One problem is that in the Middle East most governments are characterized either as theocracies, that is, there is no separation between faith and state, or they're secular governments but they're either very weak democracies or they're not real democracies. And underneath there are fundamentalist movements that essentially say the West is the source of all evil, and all truth was revealed and knowable once the Koran was given to Mohammad, and the practices of the Prophet were codified in the ensuing 300 years after his death. So it's all backward-looking. No open questions, nothing debatable. And in the complex combustible mixture of a lot of these countries, a lot of the governments allow people to go into the mosques and demonize us and demonize the West and demonize Christianity and demonize Jews because as long as they do that they think they're shifting the heat of popular distress off of the governments. And a lot of these folks have been our friends, America's friends and my friends. But we have created a discordant world in which it's hard to sort out who's where here. And we've now reached a point with all these people lying dead and these terrorist threats, with the anthrax and everything where people need to actually say what it is they believe. What do you believe is right and wrong?"
