Hi all,

As the US moves to act on net neutrality, and ICANN ponders next generation
name services, I offer the following presentation slide deck for some badly
needed thought-provocation.  Presented by Geoff Huston, Chief Scientist at


Perhaps if possible he could expand on these issues for ALAC at an ICANN
meeting or online webinar. The issues he raise are pertinent to both
ICANN's global remit and the Internet at-large, and offer an interesting
take on the evolution and large-scale power concentration now going on.

(Hint: It is *not* the last-mile ISPs that are the wielders of this power,
according to Huston's analysis.)

​While this is a PDF of a slide deck, I think most will find its content
and logical flow​ to be clearly expressed and even mildly entertaining.
Highly recommended IMO.
