Just when I have been anxiously looking forward to election
campaign participants becoming more active on Twitter, an
exchange took place last week among forces of the Left that
was better than anticipated.
Having a bit of time on my hands, I started playing around

over the world of social networking, the top position still
being in the hands of Facebook.
Finally, after years of planning, New Zealander Peter Dengate
Thrush, who chairs the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (Icann), last week steered the internet
through one of the biggest changes in its history.
