The beauty of the Internet is that it’s not controlled by any one group. Its governance is bottoms-up—with academics, non-profits, companies and governments all working to improve this technological wonder of the modern world. This model has not only made the Internet very open—a testbed for innovation by anyone, anywhere—it's also prevented vested interests from taking control.Furthermore, I would even go as far as saying most government officials lack the technical knowledge necessary to effectively develop a set of laws to govern the internet. I think we can all remember back to 2006 when the late senator Ted Steven, the man who was in charge of regulating the internet, demonstrated his poor understanding with his famous "Series of Tubes" speech:
In closing the UN needs to form a committee which includes business leaders, influential individuals, and developers. Governments are not the only ones with a vested interest in the success of the internet and its regulation. Including a broad selection of leaders from different disciplines is the only way to arrive at a fair set of regulations that ensure equal access for all.
