Bit Torrent ICANN

Posted 11 years ago by Evan Tishuk

Here's how it could work, according to computer security researcher Robert G. Ferrell, a former at-large member of ICANN. Countries that choose to house Torrent servers would receive a random piece of the DNS pie over a closed P2P network, with mirrors set up to correct data by consensus in the case of corruption or unauthorized modification. No one country would actually physically host the entire database. In essence, everybody would be in charge, but no one would be in control. Isn't that how the United Nations functions anyway?

That could be the worst idea I've ever read. -ag

I wouldn't worry too much about it. In Tunisia, the US agreed to create a committee that is toothless. So it doesn't look like anything is going to change anytime soon.

The beauty is that the system is completely free of gov't interference. The US realizes that is important ad that is why they won't let anyone mess that up
