The problem with the Internet is that it’s too global…

From an interesting (and concerning) CircleID post by Milton Mueller:

Three Chinese engineers are proposing a way to alter Internet standards to partition the Internet into autonomously administered national networks, using the domain name system (DNS). The idea was not proposed in the ITU; no, it was sent to a multi-stakeholder institution, the granddaddy of the Internet itself, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

Stay classy, China.
