  • Nations face off over the future of the Internet
    Representatives from 193 countries gathered Monday to begin two weeks of talks on the future of the Internet under the auspices of the U.N. International Telecommunications Union. While Western powers aim to preserve the current system of Internet governance, other nations, including Russia and China, are calling on the ITU to play a stronger role in a regulatory regime with clear standards and costs.
