      Selection mechanism for the remaining IPv4 address space
      On 30 July 2009, ICANN staff divided the remaining unallocated IPv4 /8s into two groups. The first group contains the /8s in which Duane Wessels' 2008 research showed significant unofficial use. The second group contains the /8s which showed less unofficial use.

      The US as Keeper of a 'Free' Internet? by Rudolf Rijgersberg
      The immanent expiration date (September 30) of the joint project agreement between ICANN and the US government, establishing the US as unilateral supervisor over Internet's addressing and Domain Name System (DNS) operations, has rejuvenated the call for an internationalization of Internet oversight. The average Internet user, however, is unlikely to benefit from a change in the current status quo as both alternatives, full privatization and intergovernmental oversight, are bound to affect both the Internet's innovative power and the personal liberties enjoyed by its users.

      Nicholas Weston - INTA tilts at new internationalised GTLDs and ccTLDs coming in 2010
      The Full Employment Act for Domain Name Practitioners, otherwise known as the new gTLDs IDN program proposed by ICANN (the acronym obsessed, global domain name bureaucrats), could be active on the Internet by the end of 2010. Under this program, it is proposed that (in summary), generic, geographical and brand names can be registered to the right of the last dot (for example, .melbourne, .aboriginal, .christian and so on). These may conflict with existing gTLD’s and ccTLD’s and with trade marks in various jurisdictions.

At the present, we have Top Level Domains like .com. and .info. We also have special domains for countries, like .au or .uk. But it seems that virtually every good domain name in these categories is taken.

      CZ.NIC demonstrates the advantages of having your own internet domain [news release]
      Internet users who normally use domain names often have no idea of the opportunities afforded by registering their own domains and how to acquire them. The number of domains registered by individuals and organizations in the Czech Republic is therefore significantly lower than in comparable countries in Western Europe. The CZ.NIC Association, administrator of the .cz domain, therefore launches an awareness campaign today, the main objective of which is to highlight the advantages of having your own domain, showing how easy it is to register an internet domain and explain how to take care of and protect it. The campaign, which is aimed at the broader internet public, uses the special microsite, www.dobradomena.cz, for this purpose.

In the second, it rejected an application seeking an injunction against a real estate website, with a name similar to another firm, saying generic or common names could not be used as an exclusive domain name.

Or as Politico underscored, he believes that President Obama is a racist, but he doesn't believe that Obama doesn't like white people.

E’ l’accordo che permette agli Stati Uniti di porre il veto a eventuali modifiche alla governance di Internet. Se nessun paese impugnerà l’accordo, il malcontento strisciante potrebbe sfociare in clamorose proteste.

      Día Nacional de Cataluña
      El 11 de septiembre es la Fiesta Nacional de Cataluña. Se conmemora la voluntad tenaz de recuperar el gobierno propio, tras la derrota de los catalanes en 1714 a manos del ejército español de Felipe V. Esta Nación, hasta ese momento soberana, perdió sus libertades nacionales, sus instituciones políticas, las leyes propias del país y sufrió la prohibición de la lengua catalana. ... LENGUA Y CULTURA. El catalán, lengua milenaria, se formó entre los siglos VIII y X como evolución del latín, igual al francés, el italiano, el castellano y todas las lenguas románicas; es la 13a en número de hablantes de la Unión Europea. Es oficial en Cataluña; en el Estado español también es lengua oficial del País Valenciano y las Islas Baleares y se habla en la Franja del Poniente, Aragón; también en la Cataluña Norte, sur de Francia; en L’Alguer, Cerdeña y en Andorra, estado donde es lengua oficial única. Es la 10ª más traducida del mundo y se
       enseña en 166 universidades de los cinco continentes y en las 120 Entidades Catalanas del exterior. En Internet, es la única con dominio propio, en 2006 la ICANN autorizó el dominio .cat que cuenta hoy con más de 30.000 dominios registrados.

      DOSAR CAPITAL.RO: „Americanii pot şterge când vor ei o ţară de pe harta Internetului”
      Organismele statului au înţeles necesitatea reglementării Internetului şi conţinutului generat de utilizatori pentru că pierd monopolul, este concluzia conferinţei susţinute joi seara la Institutul European din România de către Olivier Japiot, directorul general al consiliului superior al audiovizualului din Franţa. Un alt motiv pentru reglementarea spaţiului virtual este teama de terorişti, teama de monopolul american asupra domeniilor de Internet şi problemele legate de economia online. ... Deşi, teoretic, nu are un centru anume, există totuşi cineva care gestionează reţeaua. „Cine a hotărât să înfiinţeze domeniul .ro?”, se întreabă directorul CNA din Franţa. Este vorba despre un mecanism american, ICANN, care din septembrie 2006 a semnat un contract cu Ministerul Comerţului din America, un mare pas spre realizarea unui control deplin şi centralizat asupra identificatorilor de Internet. „Americanii pot oricând vor ei
       să şteargă o ţară de pe harta Internetului pentru că deţin serverul central. Acesta este un subiect geopolitic şi de apărare naţională”, spune Japiot.
