"Making the Internet truly local"

IDNs are the Internet's real star at the moment. But why do they matter? And why is ICANN putting so much effort into them? We asked Tina Dam, Director of ICANN's IDN program, to enlighten us.....

Re: "Making the Internet truly local"

It's like an angel vs devil type thing... I want people to talk about IDNs but at the same time I want them to STFU.

Sad that she won't christen existing IDN.gTLD as a working IDN. All of her dialogue refers to an IDN as IDN.IDN with the launch of a brand new TLD. To me, launch means fresh namespace...

Going for a cigar, yes this exact one:

A shame that she missed a good opportunity to mention idn.com as "working within the DNS system today".

I believe that would get her fired pretty much ASAP.

The way Tina puts it indeed sounds like a brand new namespace. A bit scary to think.

But if you think it again, if there is going to be a brand new namespace for every single languages, it's a tremendous amont of cost and effort for the registry to implement and maintain them. I presume it'd be much more economical to map the IDN TLD to existing gTLD. From this perspective, brand new namespaces aren't so realistic.

I thought her dialogue was quite clear they are planning on inserting IDN into the root. This quote should hopefully calm some worries. I have no doubt that they will add new extensions as well but .com .net aren't going anywhere.

Obviously these are for testing. But here are the list of the domains that idn.idn is functioning on.
