    Capacity problems at ICANN?
    by Mueller (muellerNO@SPAMsyr.edu) on Wednesday October 13 2004, @10:42AM (#14344)
    User #2901 Info | http://istweb.syr.edu/~mueller/

    This is becoming a real pattern. ICANN does not have the capacity to make needed changes in the UDRP, to alter Whois policy, to enforce or even implement the changes in Whois policy that it has agreed to make, to implement a TLD addition policy, and now, apparently, it can't even do simple protocol parameter assignments in a timely fashion. What CAN it do?

    So, it isn't just a tactic to obtain ccTLD MOUs?
    by GideonsLastSon on Wednesday October 13 2004, @12:17PM (#14345)
    User #3824 Info | http://icannwatch.jothan.at/start.php
    IANA request fulfillment response time has been inferred to as being used to [ahem] 'motivate' ccTLD administrators to establish some formal MOU with ICANN.

    Sounds to me more like there is consistency in the dissatisfaction of the pace to which requests are acted upon.

    What is ICANN Doing ?
    by Anonymous on Thursday October 14 2004, @07:16AM (#14349)
    14 Oct 2004, 09:45 GMT -
    "Announcing the final passage of the organization's 2004-2005 budget, ICANN's vice president of business affairs Kurt Pritz told ComputerWire that expansion is still a priority, but much of the cash originally planned has been allocated elsewhere." ...
    Pritz said the organization is considering two African offices, two in Asia-Pacific (ICANN CEO Paul Twomey's native Australia seems a slam-dunk here) and two or three in Latin America, in addition to the two existing offices.

    ICANN opened its first international office in Brussels almost a year ago, and last December said it would have facilities "in all the regions of the world" within six months. Twomey already spends a lot of his time working in Australia.

    RIPE.NET web-site face-lift in time for .NET
    by Anonymous on Friday October 15 2004, @07:15AM (#14356)
    RIPE.NET has just migrated their web-site to put
    the past business (IP address blocks) on the
    back-burner and to prepare for the big win of
    the .NET TLD.

    The IP address block leasing business has no
    future because ISPs will not pay for something
    that is free. Unlike ICANN, ISPs consider all of
    their bottom-line expenses.

    RIPE.NET is now poised to be part of the more
    generic business as shown on their new site:
    "Internet resource allocations, registration services and co-ordination activities that support the operation of the Internet globally."

    From the Latest Junket to the South Pacific - FIJI
    by Anonymous on Friday October 15 2004, @12:43PM (#14358)
    RIRs grabbing ALL of the IPv6 address space,
    to protect it of course.

    http://www.iab.org/documents/correspondence/2004-0 7-16-iana-delegation.html
    "The NRO EC (comprising the CEOs of each RIR) met with IANA and ICANN staff on 31 August, in Nadi, Fiji."

    "expressed a concern that the RIRs have not been delegated the entire IPv4 unicast space and therefore should not be delegated the entire 6to4 space. He proposed delegating to the RIRs only on a /8 basis, as the /8s are allocated."

    Registrars Folding Under New ICANN Tax Structure
    by Anonymous on Friday October 15 2004, @01:21PM (#14360)
    Where is the ICANN Staff ? ("on vacation") .TRAVEL anyone ?

    http://gnso.icann.org/mailing-lists/archives/regis trars/msg02375.html

    "I've requested that ICANN instruct me on how to "shutdown" a registrar as I
    have several clients that would now like to "leave" the registrar business
    before Nov 1, 2004. I've been told that Ellen Sondheim is on vacation and
    won't be back before the 20th leaving only 10 days for ICANN to process an
    "application for de-creditation."
