The internet is about to undergo a major transformation.

THE MARK: What does all this mean for the future of the internet?

DENGATE THRUSH: It’s going to change the look of it. When a bus drives past with an advertisement on the side of it, instead of it being “.com,” “.org,” or “.biz,” it may well be in Chinese, because part of this program involves what we call “internationalized domain names.” Until now, it has all been written in English because of the origins of the technology, but now we can do the whole thing in Chinese or Arabic. This, of course, is tremendous for the people who speak those languages, and their whole culture will be much better-reflected in such domain names, as they won’t need to have English words in them.
