Former NSI CTO Calls ICANN A “World Government”

Slashdot | Your Rights Online: Former NSI CTO Calls ICANN A “World Government” . David Holtzman, Chairman and CEO of Opion Inc. and former Chief Technology Officer at Network Solutions Inc, has written this interesting ICB editorial titled 'If we're going to have a world government, I want a revolution first.” He argues that 'ICANN has the potential to turn into the first world regulatory body. By beginning to associate top level domains with content usage, they are putting themselves into the position of being the defacto arbiter of content,' and concludes 'I never felt paranoia before. I do now.' It's worth a read. [Privacy Digest]

Well, first world regulatory body is a bit of an exaggeration, isn't it?
