LISTEN: The post-American Internet, with Schneier, ICANN boss, global academics

Michael writes, "The Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Future Tense hosted a panel discussion on post-USA/NSA controlled Internet possibilities.

The United States has signalled its willingness to give up its unofficial stewardship role of the Internet. Who should take over, and who will?"

For the past decade and a half, the US has been responsible for overseeing the many organisations and businesses responsible for the Internet's governance, but the NSA/Snowden surveillance scandal strengthened calls for some form of international body to take over those responsibilities.

Chris Disspain: CEO of auDA and Board Director, ICANN.
Professor Viktor Mayer-Schonberger: Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation, Internet Institute, Oxford University.
Bruce Schneier: Security technologist & Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Harvard Law School.
