The ITU did not create the Internet. There was no way it could. The Internet could only be created by engineers who celebrate freedom, openness, sharing, curiosity, innovation and even humor – values that have made the Internet what it is, and which the ITU lacks. As an engineer, this comes across in a striking way when viewing the difference between the contents of technical documents the ITU release (which of course you have to purchase) and those of Internet organizations like IETF (which are free for everyone). The ITU is the old world – it should have no say in the new one.
