    All part of that open and transparent ICANN process
    based on that wide consensus developed from
    substantial consultation with the Internet Community.

    Yep, that Internet Community no one seems to be
    a part of.

    Keep in mind that ICANN appears to want to
    maintain it's 100% track-record of how NOT
    to launch new TLDs.

    Maybe these will be text-book examples for
    the students at Harvard Law School and
    Harvard Business School ?

    The Spanish Aero Car attracts approximately 220,000 people each year.

    Beginning the Winter of 1999-2000, the Niagara Parks Commission will operate the Spanish Aero Car all year round. The Aero car has been specially outfitted for cold and inclement weather with a Plexiglas enclosure to protect riders from the outside elements.

    It is not fair to make fun of .AERO and .COOP.

    The ICANN Board picked the BEST TLDs.

    Do not question the ICANN Board's judgement.

    The ICANN Board knows consensus, when it
    sees it, and if there is no consensus, the ICANN
    Board can make consensus appear from thin AERO.

    User #2810 Info
    The IANA function reports on .aero.
    It also requires the sponsor to conduct its policy-development activities in manner that allows members of the .aero community to discuss and participate in the development of these policies.
    One of those policies being who is defined as a member of the .aero community, such circular logic could turn a battleship into a helicopter. This looks like the same hustle as was pulled with the At Large (non)membership. -g

    The .aero domain is restricted to people and entities (including relevant government agencies) who are part of the aviation community. The aviation community is those entities concerned with transactions and other communications required for the efficient, safe and secure transport of people and cargo. It includes all those people, entities and government agencies that perform activities supporting and facilitating air transport.

    www.PAPER.AERO ???? maybe so


    Farewell Flight
    “In the memory of Jon Postel!”
    With those words spoken by Postel’s brother Thomas, a small group on the stage of Bovard Auditorium — including a senior advisor to the president of the United States, a high-tech company vice president, a university president, close friends and family members — launched a flight of paper airplanes at members of the audience. The missiles were actual pages from the RFC series, and those non-computer scientists who opened them were, for the most part, baffled by the contents.
    But they could search the Internet to understand.

    Postel's brothers Rus and Thomas and their mother, Lois, launch paper airplanes at the audience.
