Blogger John Carroll says that a report released by the Working Group on Internet Governance draws several unwarranted conclusions: The United States has screwed up the Internet; government comes first; and, all governments shall have equal weight in Internet governance. "The WGIG's goal," writes Carroll, "is to put the United Nations in the Internet's driver's seat." He explains why the WGIG report fails to make a case for such a reorganization. He also criticizes the group's insistence on the importance of multilingualism in order to improve inclusiveness. "If inclusiveness is truly the goal of the WGIG, extending the lessons of the computer industry into Internet governance is an obvious first step.".
