NIB: US government keeps on ITR agenda
The US government held a series of meetings in Washington aimed at getting the technical community and business behind its pressure campaign over International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs), due to be revised in December. A memo from the meeting noted that "politics may take precedence over technical decisions" and "some national governments seek to balkanize the Internet". However, the push was sidetracked a little by ICANN's continuing problems over the new gTLD process.
