Dear John C.K, John L. and All,

A starting point, or starting points, is/are supposeddly high-valued
question as it is about the term "introductory" I said earlier. Thus ones
may come to one or more things--here we may say about the Internet
architecture and governance--with their owns. Among others it is about
"where should we start as we men live in the world with its spatio-temporal

While the analytical reading might have lacks in terms of designs and
implementations as I said above was about the "introductory reading" I
proposed. Yet, we also --with the help of such an introductory reading I
proposed-- understand that "internet architecture" is about designs and

What are about my designs and implementations for an introductory reading
on the Internet architecture and governance...? Those people gathers around
one or more things may rise concepts, discourses, and histories...

Thank you John C. K for your suggestion on the references though I wander
whether it wil be easy to find the inline ones...
