In the late 2000s, following the many years of discussion about “Internet Governance,” it was clear that a system for managing information in digital form that was rooted in the U.S. would have limited global acceptance. Specifically, many countries and organizations interested in developing and deploying components of the Digital Object Architecture (DOA), including in particular the identifier/resolution mechanism were basically reluctant to do so. It was subsequently determined that such an information system rooted in a neutral forum would be a good alternative; and Geneva was selected for that purpose. This led to the founding by Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) of the DONA Foundation (DONA) in Geneva, Switzerland.
