    Comments and requests to ICANN Board on "travel"
    by ehasbrouck on Thursday April 07 2005, @12:15AM (#14831)
    User #3130 Info | http://hasbrouck.org
    I have submitted lengthy comments [hasbrouck.org] to this morning's ICANN Board of Directors public forum, requesting that any decision to consider ".travel" at the Board meeting tomorrow be referred to an independent review panel (as provided for in ICANN's Bylaws), and reiterating my previous (thus far ignored) questions annd requests for release of documents, meeting records, and answers to questions related to "travel".

    If it is of any help to you, .TRAVEL was started
    in the mid-90's (1996?) about the same time as .BIZ and .WEB .WEB of course failed in the early market trials .BIZ continues to progress

    You seem to **give** ICANN a lot more credit or
    responsibilities than ICANN has, or likely wants.
    ICANN was created by the U.S. Government only to
    do PROOF-OF-CONCEPT market-trials for TLDs. .TRAVEL is different from .NET because there is
    not a well-organized base of 5,000,000+ million
    name owners. The .TRAVEL names will evolve one
    at a time as .TRAVEL grows and as consumers begin
    to discover it has been around a long time, just
    like .BIZ

    As an aside, you might be interested to note that
    because of ICANN's poor track record in doing
    the market trials, many consumers are not aware
    of anything but .COM. ICANN has not enforced the
    TLD proof-of-concept contracts with respect to
    the amount of money promised to be spent on
    advertising and marketing. Companies lie their
    way in and then change the rules to suit their
    needs. ICANN can attempt to lie and claim they
    are not just doing proof-of-concept TLDs, but
    the history and documents do not reflect that.
