Why ICANN Needs Fresh Blood
posted by scubacuda on Saturday March 29, @04:37PM
from the no-longer-the-wild-wild-west dept.
Internet Governance Akash Kapur of CircleID has written an editorial, Why ICANN Needs Fresh Blood: A Deeper View.
ICANN was born amid the heady days of Internet euphoria. Its early promise to be the world's first global democracy (not to mention an entirely new form of governance) was a product of that euphoria. But like so many dot-coms, ICANN quickly succumbed to the hubris of its own vision. If ICANN has been a troubled organization from the start, then that is in no small measure because it over-promised at the start....What's needed is fresh blood -- new personalities, and new ideas to break the ideological impasse.
Kapur lists cancelled at-large elections, the authoritarianism and secrecy of ICANN discussion, and the narrowing possibility that ICANN could represent a new model of governance as indicators that global democracy has failed. (/. responds)
