One thought on “Milton Mueller: Networks and States: The Global Politics of Internet Governance – NYU 12/14 #icann #igf

  1. As one involved with internet governance for some years,I found Networks and States most informative. From the early description of the types of networks in use today, to the concluding thoughts on options for internet governance, I found this book a most informative primer on this increasingly important subject.

    While there is little that interests me more than IG, I just checked the weather in NYC and see it is 24 degreese.As I watch the surfers from my window in Cartagena, it is drizzeling and 80 degreese, and I am glad I stayed for a few days of vacation after the ICANN meeting. But were I there, I would ask Milton about the role ISOC has played in the Wikileaks Affair, and how we / ISOC might positively engage as this development moves forward.
