I have a similar hearing problem. Can't imagine what is causing it!

Re: ICANN video on IDNs on Youtube (Tina Dam)

Its quite a lucid explanation of what IDNs are about, but still, she reinforces the false notion that IDNs don't actually exist yet .... how strange!

Yeah maybe :p but the funny thing is the example she gives is of an IDN that definitely could exist now i.e. the SLD is IDN not the TLD.

Perhaps ICANN are aiming to deliver a "simple message" by saying IDNs are just entering a test stage, but there is a difference between simplification of a message and grossly misrepresenting the facts.

If anyone is in regular contact with Tina, can they ask her why ICANN keeping pumping out this line? Perhaps ask her how websites with IDN domains (that don't yet exist) can get lots of traffic...

It is all part of a grand conspiracy, identified by Cerf himself in 2006:

Quote:
"Cerf and other ICANN officials say that what they see as a careful and considered approach is being construed by others as stalling (wonder where they got that idea) or an attempt to undermine the use of foreign, non-English characters." - icannblog, October 31st, 2006
