According to this article by Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/sites/emmawoollacott/2014/03/15/us-government-cedes-control-of-the-internet/ ICANN will not be controlling DNS in the very near future.
What are the chances we can have enough market share (different term needed) to turn those http://www.*'s to safe:name’s before all the global political shinanigans that will ensue start? What are the implications of that? Or do you believe that is just too short of a time frame? Is it possible that we, the “good guys” of the internet will be able to prevent the chaos that could come with this?
Please note, I know we wont be ready Jan. 1 2015, that’s just too soon, but the political garbage wont be too far behind that. I’d like to 1) not have to deal with it (slightly selfish I know) 2) people to be able to speak out against what I’m sure will be happening without fear of retribution (what MaidSafe is made for)
