I don’t know a great deal about internetworking or Internet governance, but I take an interest.

Lately I’ve been curious as to why folks are talking about the International Telecommunication Union, the International Telecommunication Regulations and Internet governance. I read a few things here and there that intimated various kinds of doom and gloom, but had a hard time understanding the details of what’s happening and why.

So I was delighted when I stumbled across a set of articles by Geoff Huston - see the section on “WCIT-12”.

I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read or watched by Huston, and these are no exception; lots to digest here but I found it was worth it. If you’re similarly curious but only have time for one article, read “It’s just not Cricket: Number Misuse, WCIT and ITRs”.
