Inside China’s controversial mission to reinvent the internet

On a cool day late last September, half a dozen Chinese engineers walked into a conference room in the heart of Geneva’s UN district with a radical idea. They had one hour to persuade delegates from more than 40 countries of their vision: an alternative form of the internet, to replace the technological architecture that has underpinned the web for half a century. Whereas today’s internet is owned by everyone and no one, they were in the process of building something very different — a new infrastructure that could put power back in the hands of nation states, instead of individuals. The team who had masterminded the New IP (internet protocol) proposal was from the Chinese telecoms giant Huawei, which had sent the largest delegation of any company to the September meeting.

Nothing came out of it, right? More so, the Huawei officials have been in trouble in some countries (Poland I believe)? Something about money laundering etc. This meeting has taken place last year and it was quite eye rising but we haven't heard anything else about it, have we? I guess there is too much going on in the world too keep a clear track about it all.

I haven't heard anything more about it, but I haven't looked either. I would suspect that given (1) people are starting to distrust Chinese electronics and (2) it's been pretty slow for the world to adopt IPV6 that it will be a very long time before their stuff is adopted if at all. But it does show the direction they want to go. If they do become as dominant or more than the U.S. then they will start to do this so they can monitor everything.

This is one of many reasons why the Chinese companies and goverment cannot be trusted. They keep gathering information about us and stealing personal information. They know as much as our goverments, but in this case they are not our goverment. We haven't agreed to give away our key information to them. We have to be careufl about them.
