What happens when a majority of the people around the world who use the internet have little to no say on its administration and subsequent evolution?

Particularly, in light of the plans to increase Internet access to the two thirds of the world’s population that who currently doesn’t don’t have it, what does Internet democracy and the right to Internet access actually mean?

Does social media activism like Tumblr’s ongoing “It’s Our Internet” campaign actually carry weight? Or, does it merely serve as a ruse that further speaks to the powerlessness of the world’s poor?

Basically, whose internet is it after all?
