ISOC President on the Path to a Global Internet of Opportunity

Information Society meeting this week must rebuke those nations that seek top-down, censorial control of the Internet, warns Kathryn Brown, president of the Internet Society. In an op-ed column in the USA Today, Brown wrote: "It is in this delicate environment that government representatives from around the world are meeting this week at the United Nations General Assembly in New York to determine the fate of Internet and information and communications technologies (ICT) development over the next decade. The World Summit on the Information Society ten year review (WSIS+10) is set to chart a path forward that will determine whether or not the world will experience an Internet of opportunity or one of constraint. Almost 60% of the world's population is still offline, and in connecting the next billion, we need to ensure they connect to an open and trusted Internet."
