    There Will Be NO Central .NET Registry Tick Tick
    by Anonymous on Friday July 15 2005, @08:03AM (#15721)
    There Will Be NO Central .NET Registry Tick Tick

    Tick, Tick, Tick
    Time is ticking for Verisign and their ICANN regulatory division.

    Edge devices will soon handle the .NET Registry in a fully distributed manner using grid agent mesh technology.

    ICANN comes from the VAX mainframe era. They
    are senile relics out of touch with new technology
    and only holding on as time ticks away.

    Tick, tick, tick.
    Even ICANN can not stop time, but they sure do
    a good job of delaying innovations.

    Again, ICANN and Verisign Love the Controversy

    Again, ICANN and Verisign Love the Controversy

    ...as they pocket the fees and keep the
    discussions going...and keep Registrars running
    in circles...acting like fools...

    ...with Registrars distracted, they will not
    ask questions like...."why aren't they allowed
    to be a Registry?" [tsk tsk only ICANN can
    approve that **level** of player]

    who approves ICANN ? [silence]

    Reopening .NET

    User #6 Info | http://www.lextext.com
    The language that Dr. Cerf read from the Verisign statement was carefully worded. If I recall correctly (and the real-time transcription should be posted next week), Verisign said that it was open to discussions about the timing of the price cap rollbacks. Not much of a concession but interesting to see Verisign trying to help ICANN save face.

    As far as I can tell, the general sense in Luxembourg is that a rollback in price caps is appropriate if we have real registry-level competition. Perhaps that's good news for .WEB and others.
