Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have had a fond spot for Bakunin since I read the E. H. Carr biography ~ 1962, my second year in college.  I would probably get a lot more out of it today.  :-)

I agree that what to do next with ICANN is problematic.  I am generally not a fan of privatization nor of US hegemony, especially given how it has been exercised.  The only thing that has been a positive to date is that the tech community and interested companies in the USA have succeeded in fending off most heavy handed attempts at government intervention.  Posts about proposed regulation in Europe combined with what we have seen from China, Vietnam etc. and what we know about mid-east countries such as Saudi Arabia, Syria etc. do not leave me all warm and fuzzy about the prospects for international control either.  Any suggestions?
