I agree most heartily with your comments. Internet gatekeepers are a sketchy
issue, however. Who regulates the regulators? It is important that
regulating the internet with gatekeepers does not "throw the baby out with
the bathwater", per se. Who ensures that the gatekeepers are regulated?

Your comments on "mob rule" were straight on the point, sir.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: People often times praise two long-
time netizens for their abilities; one being Vint Cerf and the other
being Esther Dyson, in other words, the ICANN people. Maybe -- if we
can think out of the box for a few minutes -- an organization like
ICANN could handle this 'gatekeeper' function pretty well. Any
thoughts? PAT]
