Case 08 - ICANN Bad Attitude
Case 08 - ICANN Bad Attitude

Note than in the sciences they're trying to get away from domain name. We use permanent identifiers there and the domain name system may work well for ad and spammers but it's now-ephemeral nature is incompatible with the prime mandate of the WWW which is "the embodiment of human knowledge, online".
In other news, there's six new killies from Gabon.
Not the use of non domain urls here. The is the first time I"ve seen this and I read things like this dailay. I'm guessing this is a result of Bob Kahn's handle work

David Lawrence I am apparently being exceptionally dense or looking at the wrong thing, but those URNs are still leveraging domain names...
Richard Sexton For now. Plus there's a new flavor of DNS that is running the rounds in IETF circles that's done in javascript from web pages. Not how I'd do it but it will work.
A repository of genome sequences is not a profit center for anine and ice put into place, should stay there. This is inconsistent with post-ICANN DNS service so they're lookig for a way out. Jon Postel once published that he'd received a .zoo tld application when he posted the "list of tld applications revovec by IANA" and I still think that's the name to use.
Evan Leibovitch Appears like a lookup database at, a domain still required for the scheme to work. Or will this eventually be hardcoded as an IP address (or otherwise found without a DNS lookup)? Just trying to see the innovation here. 1
Bill Manning huzzah for the handle system
Richard Sexton "a domain still required for the scheme to work" It needs a domain that never expires to work. .arpa names don't expire. "like"
Remember me, buy my shirts!
