Saving the Internet, For Now

A deal reached at the World Summit on the Information Society will allow the US-based ICANN oraganization to retain control over the Internet's root server and domain names. Open Source Media has a good roundup of news and opinion.

This is clearly good news. Thanks to this deal, the Internet will continue to function as a tool of free speech and expression, instead of being controlled by a UN body influenced by the likes of Fidel Castro and Robert Mugabe.
