Abstract: "The United Nations is well positioned for the global changes of the information age now engulfing nation-states. The UN role and tasks--as global norm setter, broker, networker, convener, and peacekeeper--are ideally suited to today's world of linked 'infostructures' and distributed power, influence, and knowledge typified by the emerging global civil society. The UN can serve all these emerging infostructures--and be compensated by fostering debates and convening parties to design the needed agreements for operating the emerging 'electronic commons' including today's global financial casino. Technological, social, and some market opportunities in new public/private partnerships to serve the global commons."
