Re: <nettime> Protocols and Crises

In fact, I believe that "protocol power" is the precise opposite of
multistakeholderism where MSism is always and necessarily ad hoc, temporary,
localized and where "showing up" (with the resources and staying power to
keep showing up) is the source of power in a MS environment.

"Protocol power" is fixed, static and generalized (globalized)--think the
rule of law rather than the outcome of a continuing series of ad hoc
negotiations among multiple disconnected stakeholders.

The more common match term for "protocol power" as coined by the abstract
seems to be the anglo-saxon "multistakeholderism" governance model. It is
deeply embedded in their political culture. I assume it stems from a more
corporatist past.
