CSCI 1951B - Virtual Citizens or Subjects? The Global Battle Over Governing Your Internet
The Internet began as a U.S. government research project, progressed to an open network run by free-spirited geeks, and transitioned in the late 1990’s to a unique governance model in which nations, corporations, and civil society were supposed to all have a voice.
