How is ITU different from a dinosaur?
Answer: ITU is not extinct yet.
On the rest, they are the same: Fossilized, old, heavy, slow.
We don’t know if dinosaurs noticed the meteorite that disrupted their world and, some say, led them to extinction.
What we know is that ITU don’t want to notice the meteorite that is leading them to irrelevance: the Internet.
These persistent attempts are just evidence that this breed of dinosaurs, with their pea-sized brains, hasn’t figured out that they are dead yet, because the signal hasn’t traveled up their long necks.

It’s time that an organization like ITU, that has done so much for the development of telecom over almost 150 years, adapts to a new world, where they no longer have the control. Else they will end like dinosaurs, extinct.
