Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

WSIS Summit: ICANN To Remain In Charge of Internet

Those nations wishing the UN to take control of the entire internet had their hopes deflated as the recent World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) concluded:

Negotiators from more than 100 countries agreed late Tuesday to leave the United States in charge of the Internet's addressing system, averting a U.S.-EU showdown at this week's U.N. technology summit.

Under the terms of the compromise, the new group, the Internet Governance Forum, would start operating next year with its first meeting opened by Annan. Beyond bringing its stakeholders to the table to discuss the issues affecting the Internet, and its use, it won't have ultimate authority.

As with most things, it is no guarantee there will not be a later push. The eye is about the same, real blurry, but there's sooooo much going on I can't keep away, so I squint a lot.
