Tired of IDN news?

Get used to it

It is nice to finally see what has been said here for years on CNN.

I think it is the 1st time in IDN history to get more then 1,000 news sources reporting within 20-30 hours ( http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&so...-8&sa=N&tab=wn )

Nice image in this one: http://asia.cnet.com/blogs/sinobytes...4&scid=rvhm_ms

Quick, Go Register "Porn.com" In Cyrillic http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/...c_2009_10.html

I think someone did already and it gets more then 60k uniques monthly.

We got competition lol: http://www.non-latinletterdomains.com/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdthisJbfEA With Russia's cctld director Mr. Kolesnikov and Mr. Beckstrom

IMO, reading some arguments on other posts, starting from the end:

It is impossible registrant A owns i.e Cougar .com in Chinese,Russian or Farsi and a different registrant B owns the idn.idn equivalents to these only because it will cause user confusion and that is definitely not an option.

To me, the only missing variants at the moment are the date the idn gTLD's are getting aliased and rather it will be free , fractional cost or cost like a new registration for the idn.idn versions.

Re: Tired of IDN news?

I was going to post a compilation of links to all the recent news articles and videos in one place but this seems like a good place to do the same.

http://tech.yahoo.com/news/ap/200910...internet_names

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8334233.stm

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8333209.stm

http://www.internetnews.com/infra/ar...omment=20050-0

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1256...LEFTTopStories

This has made news in Japan as well:

http://www.japantoday.com/category/t...lish-addresses

In Japanese too!

http://www.asahi.com/digital/cnet/CNT200910270042.html

Here is a good video on the subject:

Please add any more you find to this thread. I know this isn't all of them.

Re: Tired of IDN news?

Heres a few Greek ones ...

http://www.ethnos.gr/article.asp?cat...&pubid=7676838

http://www.kathimerini.gr/4dcgi/_w_a...10/2009_305176

http://news.ert.gr/el/epistimi/eidis...i-kai-ellinika

I really do hope that this can increase awareness here in Greece about IDNs.

At least, Kathimerini took the time to write more comprehensive and correct stuff than all the other Greek news sources I've read so far, who seem to simply regurgitate the same stuff from the same original source.

Also, that same article mentions that China and Thailand have implemented the system already.

I wasn't aware that Thailand was using dot Thai in the same respect as China.

Can anyone confirm this.

You bring up a fine and excellent point.

The 1st IDN conference will likely be held after the next significant 'Internet Upgrade' ie. IDN.IDN for gTLD's

The first point to ponder is: Do we allow ASCII domains in our 'Premium Auction'?

The second point is, which one of us has enough bad fashion sense to put the whole thing together?

I vote Montreaux, Switzerland, preferably just prior to the start of the Jazz Festival.

Kill 2 birds with one stone.

No, Thailand doesn't have its "own" IDN system at the moment. There was a feeble attempt a few years ago but it fizzled out. You'd need strong government to implement that kind of project successfully ;-)

Well, we have to be there on Thursday because that's Texas Hold'em night at the Casino.

Then you'll pretend to not know how to play poker (again) and if I don't make enough money off you to buy the phone for you, I'll play "name the punycode" with Alpha to make up the difference.
