This paper on random linear coding approach is not simple for digestion, but W Diffie seems to think it's big. So maybe one day someone can write it in a more layman's terms, explaining how it would replace the current tcp ip routing.
In the meantime, French Senate has a lot of interesting things to say about Internet governance and it being a political ambition for Europe and the industry. While the CIGI website features Organized Chaos but also features new report mentioning the term " the swing state" - actually a very bad term diplomatically speaking - though I used it too recently at the ICANN meeting to talk about "shifting: grounds.
Thansk to Russel Hardin, I'm having a major difficult time understanding his semantic nuances between trust and trustworthiness while learining about trust. But this paragraph makes a good attempt to explain that:
“Some philosophers believe that trustworthiness can be “compelled by the force of norms” or, more generally, by the force of social constraints (Hardin 2002, 53; see also O'Neill 2002, Dasgupta 1988). In an effort to be trustworthy, people can subject themselves to social constraints, as someone does when she publicly declares her intention to lose weight, putting herself at risk of public censure if she fails. Alternatively, the trustor in a relationship can introduce the constraints by requiring that the trustee sign a contract, for example. The constraint imposed could be the primary motivation for being trustworthy. It would compel on ongoing commitment grounded in self-interest. Call this view of trustworthiness “the social contract view.”.
I am focusing on Internet governance topic and how trust in technology including the trust in the Internet and on-line trust is then being translated to trust in people, processes and institutions and govts in charge of technology and what is necessary to obtain the trust in technology.
The IAB is in charge of the IANA stewardship transition plan and it needs input from the IETF therefore the IANA plan working group is being formed at the IETF90.
The IETF's approach is to mainly focus on stability and the transition, document the process and not make the NTIA "more nervous: unnecesserily so. "Don't rock the boat."
A person at the mike mentioned a couple of things that are in the NTIA's contract with ICANN and are not covered in any of the RFCs, but he refused to say which couple of things. Very helpful intervention.
In addition to IPROC, the IAOC is in charge of negotiating the contract with IANA - most doucments here.
There is an artist who can rent out whole of her body including her ovaries, but there is no view of that rental taking place. A n upgraded Jennycamm, but the 3d printer vagina selfie is something different
Based on the number of topics to be discussed in this draft program especially those such as Net Neutrality that weren't resolved at the NetMundial 2014, makes the 9th IGF potentially the most vibrant IGF so far.
Sub-themes agreed by the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group: Enabling Access, Content Creation, Disseminatin and Use, Internet as an Engine for Growth and Development, IGF and the Future of the Internet Ecosystem, Enhancing Digital Trust, Internet and Human Rights, Critical Internet Resources are not much of a surprise...
But the IANA stewardship transition, WSIS 10+, French GAC person leaving ICANN, the French-German alliance the derailed trust post the Snowden revellations will keep the focus on the need to revisit they way the Internet is governed and the overall awareness of bottom up multistkeholder approach outside the small 2000 people circles.
