Unit 5 Assignment 1: Future Statement
They reinforced the importance of globally coherent Internet operations, and warned against Internet fragmentation at a national level. They expressed strong concern over the undermining of the trust and confidence of Internet users globally due to recent revelations of pervasive monitoring and surveillance.
They identified the need for ongoing effort to address Internet Governance challenges, and agreed to catalyze community-wide efforts towards the evolution of global multistakeholder Internet cooperation.

They also called for the transition to IPv6 to remain a top priority globally. In particular Internet content providers must serve content with both IPv4 and IPv6 services, in order to be fully reachable on the global Internet.
Could this be the invention that will allow electric vehicles to permanently displace gasoline-powered cars?
A group of scientists from Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has developed a battery electrode that can heal itself, potentially offering a commercially viable path for making the next generation of lithium-ion batteries to be used in electric cars, cell phones and other devices.
According to scientists, the secret behind the newly invented battery is a stretchy polymer that coats the electrode, binds it together and instinctively heals small cracks that develop while the battery is in use.
"Self-healing is very important for the survival and long lifetimes of animals and plants," Chao Wang, a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford and one of two principal authors of the paper, said in a…...
