US Surrenders Internet
The US government has relinquished control of the domain-parsing "switchboard" of the Internet. Control will pass to an international body which will likely include countries with no history of respect for freedom of speech. This has been generally ignored in the media despite the possibility that it may eventually mean the end of free speech on the Internet. Transits for this event against the charts for the US and for the Internet (data from James Kelleher) are interesting in this regard.
