Abstract
“Efforts to develop the Internet protocols were international from the beginning. The Internet has significantly contributed to globalization processes and transcultural interactions which will continue into the future… Bridging the cultural gap between the technical and political communities should not be underestimated as cooperation between these two stakeholders plays a central role, especially in the digital transformation of society… As the system evolved and spread, we hoped that the Internet and the technologies that support it could contribute to greater democracy, freedom of speech and human rights worldwide… There is no guarantee that a single, global society will emerge from the widespread use of the Internet and ICTs.”
