The future of the internet and the US government's role within it will be debated at a public meeting tomorrow in Washington DC.

Starting at 1.30pm local time, officials from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) will discuss "issues associated with the continuation of the transition of the technical coordination and management of the internet domain name and addressing system (internet DNS) to the private sector".

What that means is that NTIA will debate what changes should be made to the contract the US government has with internet overseeing organisation ICANN when the existing contract ends on 30 September.
