The statement below was recently released by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). The members of the IAB are shown below and here: <http://www.isi.edu/iab/members.html> In my opinion, the best way to hold an open discussion about this announcement is with the IAB on the Internet. If these people are really interested in open discussions about Internet Governance they can easily post their views to the lists that seem to attract people from around the world. No one needs to fly to Washington, D.C. to participate in these discussions. The discussions can happen at any time. It is up to the IAB to enter these open discussions. To date, they have hardly participated. As more and more discussions open up and as people begin to look at alternative Internet architectures, one would think that the IAB members would be interested in helping to shape these discussions. It will be interesting to see if they participate in the growing, global Internet in open discussions with people other than themselves. They have the opportunity, it is sitting in front of them.
