    The really amazing thing about the Internet is not the technology. In fact, we had large computer networks similar to the Internet before, and the ‘Internet’ existed long before ordinary people knew the term. The surprising thing is that such a massive computer network could exist without being built or governed in any seriously organized way. The only organization that really has control over the central computer network of the Internet is a non-profit company backed by the US government. Called ‘ICANN’, but no one could claim that it ‘controlled’ the Internet, as its mandate and activities are extremely limited.
