We Can't Have That Now, Can We

Oh they feel "left out." And I imagine their feelings were hurt, too.

Well, then, by all means, let them help control the internet!

That's Kofi Annan, laying out his best argument as to why America should cede control of the Internet to other countries.
But developing countries find it difficult to follow all these processes and feel left out of Internet governance structures....

Everyone acknowledges the need for more international participation in discussions of Internet governance. The disagreement is over how to achieve it. So let's set aside fears of U.N. "designs" on the Internet. Much as some would like to open up another front of attack on the United Nations, this dog of an argument won't bark.
I'm confident it will bark, and very loudly.
