Hi Surprise !! Internet is a surprise in a world where everything is merchandised The last 30 years last years were particularly marked by this movement (thanks to the notable influence of the /World Trade Organization)/ Yes, Internet is an unbearable surprise. How a "common good" could develop itself while everything around was "regulated" toward private interests ? Behind ITU everybody can see the stake : the control of the tremendous voice market, voice over IP indeed (IPV6, E164, ENUM and so on...) To maintain its status of vital "common good", Internet needs as much neutrality as possible I agree with the previous analysis Claude Combes Directeur Technique & Prospective INTERMEDIASUD Ce courrier électronique et toutes les pièces jointes sont strictement confidentiels et destinés exclusivement au(x) destinataire(s) mentionné(s) ci-dessus.
