CNBUG Community Node-Based User Governance October 9, 2006

Posted by shahan in internet artchitecture.

Alice Goldmann has proposed the Internet governance model Community Node-Based User Governance (CNBUG), extended from Craigslist [Wikipedia] and with comparisons to existing models such as the Benevolent Dictatorship, Democratic models and the Peer Production model put forth by Susan Crawford, David R. Johnson,and John G. Palfrey Jr (The Accountable Internet: Peer Production of Internet Governance).

This model is important as it solves some of the restrictions and problems from centralized and self-governed web information management. While with its weaknesses, there are many aspects yet to be discovered and tested due to the rate at which the Internet transforms and the move into a “Decentralized Democratic” governance will provide further opportunities for model implementations. The CNBUG paper is a worthwhile read for familiarization of governance models as it represents key ideas for participatory nodes.
