Actually, the IG is only a UN with 7 billions sovereign states, some
of them using e-not-so-diplomatic-pouches. How many of us on this
list believing we can impact the world?
Currently the only impact anyone can have is through source code. You
can understand why the Internet Established Techies Fellows want to
stay by their own, protecting their influence on code and their jobs.
Their problem is that they are losing control on the system they
designed. It becomes autonomous. Hence their need for the Govs to
protect them from an innovation they do not control. What is fun is
that Sao Paulo is a good place for FLOSS people considering the
missing layers. Cheers !
