ICANN finally reveals who’s behind purchase of .org: It’s ███████ and ██████ – you don't need to know any more

Except the local webs will be handed over to the most enthusiastic person who will then treat it as their personal baby and you will have to keep this person in treats if you want ANYTHING done and either they die suddenly with no record of passwords/logins and no inducted deputy or they pull something like this under the cover of ‘corporate sponsorship’ which consists of a purchase deal.

Then said corporate then proceeds to hoover up all the other small nets and we will be back where we started.

Short of a major improvement in peer to peer networking leaving the current infrastructure redundant I don’t see a good way out of this unless the new owners get an attack of conscience and put .org into charity ownership. Sorry, dropped off there and started dreaming.
