(2) I'll be Kristie LuStout's guest today on CNN International at 840ET / 540 PT for a Techwatch segment on the future of internet governance. More on that subject in this report I filed for NPR News "Day to Day", and here are two additional items worth reading on that subject: "Preserving the Web of the free," by Mark Shiffrin and Avi Silberschatz in the NYT, and this WSJ piece (paid subscribers only, alas), "Thinking Global," by Frederick Kempe.
