There was recently some rather paranoid stuff posted about the putative possible UN takeover of internet governance at the WCIT meeting. Not sure where the thread was posted but I figure the folks who worry about such things would be interested to know that the whole thing blew up, no treaties were signed, the US, Canada, UK, Sweden, Poland, Kenya, New Zealand, Poland, and others basically walked out. No UN takeover this year and you'll need to worry about some other threats to your freedom for the next little bit. More information here.
