Who Controls the Internet?

An interesting question, which makes you think. Is it the person who created this world wide web the controller or does the government play a role in controlling the Internet.

Here is your answer -

"Earlier this month, 15,000 heads of state, NGO do-gooders, businessmen, techies, and technocrats descended on Tunisia for the United Nations-sponsored World Summit on the Information Society. Delegates discussed the great digital divide separating rich and poor nations and sampled technologies like a $100 crank-powered laptop computer and a solar-powered e-mail terminal. But what hijacked the proceedings was the matter of who should administer the Internet—the United States or the United Nations."
