Governing the Interweb

Andy Oram has an interesting essay on O'Reillynet.com, explaining why control over Internet maintenance tasks (e.g., assigning domain names and IP addresses) is such a political issue. Short story: the UN has proposed taking over these duties from ICANN (based in the US of A), and it looks like JB don't play that.

You probably haven't seen anything about it on the nightly news, what with all those naked coeds stories. But trust me, this is a big deal.

this quite possibly the coolest thing i've ever seen. i wish i were back in college so i could use it. imagine studying for tests with notes on your wall!!! in history, i could have illustrated entire millenia on my dorm walls. that way i could study every time i walked in the the room. as of now, i'll use it in my classroom for my students.
