As far as I know, the plan was to elect Al Gore and then to bring
the FCC to regulate everything. That plan seems to be changing now
that George W. Bush has been elected. Unfortunately, William Daley
(the former U.S. Secretary of Commerce), one of the architects of
ICANN, is busy trying to get the vote changed. Others are obviously
busy with their plans...and ICANN is meeting in Los Angeles this week.

"Vinton Cerf, Nicknamed the "Father of the Internet:" "I think it is very
to say that the Internet would not be where it is in the United States
the strong support given to it and related research areas by the Vice
President in his current role and in his earlier role as Senator." Cerf is
currently a
senior vice president with MCI Worldcom."
"Dave Farber, Professor of Telecommunications at the University of
Pennsylvania: "Without [Gore] there is a good chance it [the Internet]
would not be where it is today," said Dave Farber."
