According to R, my brilliant computer science husband, the US doesn’t run the internet. The “I” in IP addresses comes from “international.” The government doesn’t control it either, he says.
He also said he’s glad they think they do, since they won’t try.
I don’t know if they think they do, but they didn’t want to hand it over to the UN or the EU either way. They could take it out of the hands of the folks who are doing it, at least in the US.
If he writes about it, I’ll point you there.
