    ICANN is Simply Stalling Until After the Election

    ICANN is Simply Stalling Until After the Election

    The DOC is not going to pull ICANN's plug in
    30 days, in fact, the DOC can not do anything to
    ICANN. The DOJ and other USG departments may be
    able to do something. They can not act until
    after the election. If Bush wins, there is one
    set of steps that need to be taken. If one of
    the other candidates wins, you might as well
    forget about .WEB. If .WEB *were* added, it will
    be handed to an ISOC insider, to allow them to
    retire and promote the "party line". As it stands
    now, all of the ISOC insiders are now well-funded
    and .NET will really put them on easy street.
    That is clearly Cerf's agenda. Funding to the

    "I've been waiting patiently for this report, as I saw it as the roadmap to getting .Web into the roots. Whatever criteria ICANN chose to set down, I was prepared (and still am prepared) to simply agree and move forward. Alas, I can't even do that, as ICANN hasn't put any criteria forward. I believe there's little doubt that that was what DoC contemplated this report as being. Obviously, it is not.

    So what to do? In the perfect world, those applicants still waiting would go directly to DoC and demand (ever-so politely) that DoC do something, since ICANN clearly won't.

    Enough. Is. Enough."

    .WEB could follow CISCO's lead with .LAN

    .WEB could follow CISCO's lead with .LAN

    CISCO has .LAN hard-wired into their hardware

    Do you think the ISOC/IETF/ICANN cartel would be
    able to consider the .LAN TLD at this point in
    time ? .WEB could simply take the DNSMASQ code that
    maps .WEB to .WS and join up with CISCO in adding .WEB to the list of TLDs that the ISOC can never
    touch. With that approach, .WEB then has a
    wireless access point device that gives consumers .WEB (backed by .WS) and a whole lot more than
    the ISOC would ever approve. Consumers (at least
    in the .USA) like to have more and not be
    censored by some Soviet Secret I-Society.
