Who to ask whether something is a country or > not? UN? ITU? US gov't? EU? Jim Flemming? good question... The Internet was built by researchers, some gov actions, commercial business, now politics, etc. But above all by its own users... When you surf on the Net, you don't care about the geo location of the sites you're consulting... Maybe, governments and politics have nothing to do with that... The US funded the moon expeditions, but they declared the results belonged to Humanity... The Internet is a bigger Step for Humanity, as it concerns everybody in daily life, whichever the country... Maybe am I too idealistic, there's much more money to make on the Internet than on the moon... Anyway, governments, even in the most advanced countries (from the Internet point of view), are not the only players. -- Jean-Christophe PRAUD - LUDEXPRESS http://www.ludexpress.com http://www.nicwine.net http://www.irsc.ah.net 3:213 WINE Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu n'gah Bill R'lyeh Wgah'nagl fhtagn -------- Logged at Mon Sep 14 21:45:49 MET DST 1998 ---------
