Why is ICANN rushing its ‘UN ‘net security council’? So it can be announced at Davos
Despite rejections from its closest allies and calls for delay, ICANN is determined to create a “coordination council” for its internet-steering NetMundial Initiative this month. Why?
The initiative was born out of a meeting in April between some governments, ICANN, and others, in Brazil, to discuss the future direction of the web in the wake of Edward Snowden’s NSA surveillance revelations.
