The Public Starts Thinking About New TLDs
I spotted this commentary at ConnorNet thinking about a .pod TLD for podcasts, company-specific TLDs (such as .yahoo) and industry-wide TLDs such as .news. It seems like policy discussions are underway everywhere except the one place where you would expect such matters to be under thorough discussion and debate -- ICANN's GNSO Council. So far all we've seen is a few submitted statements that mostly did nothing more than re-hash earlier position papers... no actual policy discussions have yet started. Methinks the Committee of the Whole needs a swift kick in the butt.
