Re: Chinese Delegation to be announced

David,

thanks for posting this.

tw/cn/sg/ presented with Tina , so I imagine the IANA process will be for all 3 together.

I hope IANA has a better PR checklist this time (not letting Egypt/ Emirates knowing the root was going live last time.)

But I am still puzzled by the absence of Japan.

Have you seen anything to explain why Japan is lagging here ?

My guess is that the corporate push back from xxxxx.co.jp ASCII or something very external to JPRS.

It just seems odd for the Japanese not to have gotten their act together since the Nov 09 Chinese language string approvals.

At least Singapore is ready with 2 language scripts.

Re: Chinese Delegation to be announced

Thank you.

We come then to three very important resolutions related to
delegation, and members who are looking at their agenda will note
that there is another matter, but I will do that after we have done
these redelegations.

There's been a considerable amount of work, as people will know in
relation to IDN ccTLD delegations, and we come today to three more of
those, and I'll take -- I will come to the first one which deals with
China and ask Harald Alvestrand, who has a long history in developing
the IDN work. Harald.

>>HARALD ALVESTRAND: Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

This is the -- The resolution is delegation of the (in Chinese) top-
level domains to China Internet network information center. I am
sorry for all pronunciation errors or if I remember the word
incorrectly.

Whereas, ICANN has received a request for delegation of (in Chinese)
encoded as xn--fiqz9s and (in Chinese) encoded as xn--fiqs8s to China
Internet network information center as country code top-level domains.

Whereas (in Chinese) are two strings that were deemed to have
successfully completed the string evaluation portion of the IDN ccTLD
fast track process by the ICANN Board of Directors in resolution
2010.04.22.11.

Whereas ICANN has determined that the proposal is on behalf of a
country or territory that is currently listed in the ISO 3166-1
standard, and therefore eligible to be delegated country code top-
level domains under current policy. Whereas the strings applied for
delegation are proposed to be used by the applicant in a manner
consistent with the country or territory for which they were approved
in the string evaluation process.

Whereas the applicant has undertaken to operate the two top-level
domains in a manner which does not cause confusion to the Internet
user community, as documented in their implementation plan published
online at, URL.

Whereas ICANN has reviewed the delegation request, and has
determined that the proposal would be in the interests of the local
and global Internet communities.

Resolved that the proposed delegation of the (in Chinese) top-level
domains to China Internet Network Information Center is approved.

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thank you, Harald.

Kuo-Wei.

>>KUO-WEI WU: I have two comments for that. First of all, I'd
like to declare, because I am still the board member of the TWNIC and
also a member of the CDNC, so I am not going to comment on this or
also voting on this resolution, but I would like Harald to correct
the Chinese pronunciation, though, and I think this might be the
reason for me, as Chinese, to sit on the board.

It's (in Chinese), and so I think that is -- if any of you need to
pronounce correct Chinese, I'm here, please.

[ Laughter ]

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thank you very much for that.

[ Applause ]

What I'm actually looking for first as a matter of formality is for
someone to second that resolution.

So I see George was up fast to be associated with what is a very,
very positive resolution, indeed.

So we have the motion moved and seconded. Thank you, Kuo-Wei, for
both those things, your expression and the reason for your abstention
later on in the voting because of the possible conflict. And much
more, thank you for helping with us the Chinese pronunciation. There
are going to be many occasions when I'm sure your services will be
called upon.

Are there any other discussion about this resolution?

Jean-Jacques.

>>JEAN-JACQUES SUBRENAT: Thank you, Peter. I would like to seize
this opportunity to chair a comment on the three requests that are
laid before our eyes, not only for (in Chinese). This is also
relevant for Taiwan, dot Taiwan and dot Hong Kong.

This is extremely important not only for ICANN and for the Internet
but it has a universal importance, and I would like to mention the
UNESCO convention of 2005 on the diversity of cultural expression.
And I would like to recall two of the main provisions of this
convention.

Firstly, affirming that cultural diversity is an inherent
characteristic of humanity. I think this is a very strong principle
and a very encouraging one. And second whereas, recalling that
cultural diversity that thrives in a framework of democracy,
tolerance, social justice, and mutual respect between peoples and
cultures is a prerequisite for security, peace at national and
international level.

I would also like to say that these are principles, but it is also a
fact that languages do not exclusively belong to states. They are
the ownership of populations and individuals, and it is a specificity
of their culture. And this is -- these are the reasons why these
three requests are so paramount.

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: You wanted to speak in relation to this
resolution also?

>>RAM MOHAN: Yes, thank you. I am also very pleased to see this
resolution as well as this set of resolutions come forward. As
someone who has been working with IDNs and in the area of IDNs for
quite a while, and specifically in the last little while been
involved in understanding some more of the nuances that go into the --
both the delegation as well as the technology behind it, I'm
absolutely pleased that we are here.

You know, the fact is that of the nearly 1.8 billion Internet users,
those that speak the Chinese language represent the single largest
group besides English speakers. China itself has almost 400 million
Internet users. And this development and the vote and the addition
of the TLDs that use the Chinese language is, in my opinion, truly an
historic moment and a landmark in where the TLD system is going.

And I, for one, am really proud to be in a very small way to be part
of a community that has helped make it happen.

That community, what I'm talking about is the IETF, the Internet
Engineering Task Force, and the engineering community.

The engineers at the IETF have been at the forefront of the effort
to get IDNs, to get the technology behind it to work in a way that is
compatible with the Domain Name System that was built many years ago
and build a way so that there is a continuing bridge to the future.
And hats off to all of the engineers and to the linguists and that
set of communities that got together to help make this a reality.

Certainly from the Chinese language perspective, there have been a
great number of very talented folks who have contributed, including
submitting RFCs and things like that into the engineering community.
And I think that's a fantastic model for how to go forward.

So with that, I just want to say something. Kuo-Wei was saying, you
know, he is here to help teach pronunciation. And I spent just a
little bit of time earlier with him to learn how to say this, and Kuo-
Wei, if you could just correct me. I'm going to say this in Chinese.
I will tell you what it actually means in English afterwards.

(In Chinese)

[ Applause ]

>>RAM MOHAN: What that means is we welcome Chinese into the root
server.

Thank you.

[ Applause ]

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thank you.

Thank you. I think there was applause for you making the effort.

Let's turn over to Kuo to get a mark for that pronunciation.

[ Laughter ]

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thank you for that. Let's move on. I am
going to put that resolution. I'm sure everybody on the board wants
to associate themselves with all of the things that have been said.

Rod?

>>ROD BECKSTROM: Just one brief remark and that is to say this is
a truly historic moment. More than one out of five people who walk
on this planet speak Chinese as a first language. In addition to all
the incredible engineering work that's gone on for many years, the
policy work, the work by linguists and the work in the last six
months by the operators in China of this proposed IDN ccTLD and the
intense work of the board of ICANN and staff and the community have
been remarkable. And it's exciting for all of us, I think, to be
here and to see the root truly embrace the world.

Thank you.

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thanks, Rod. I am going to put that
resolution now, so all those in favor, please raise your hands.

Any opposed? Any abstentions? Kuo-Wei you indicated your
abstention for the reason that you gave. I declare that resolution
carried.

[ Applause ]

(Standing Ovation)

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: What an historic day. Let's move to
another historic very similar resolution, and I will call on Jean-
Jacques to take us through the resolution in relation to another
ccTLD delegation.

>>JEAN-JACQUES SUBRENAT: I'd like to consider that the applause
and the consideration manifested for one of the three gTLDs that IDNs
asked for applies to all three, and that the enthusiasm applies to
all three, because what is at stake is really a community, a
linguistic, a cultural community that is not restricted to one
country, no matter how large and important it is.

I think it's a worldwide recognition that diversity is here and
that's how we must operate.

So delegation of the (in Chinese) top-level domain to Hong Kong
Internet Registration Corporation Limited.

Whereas ICANN has received a request for delegation of (in Chinese)
encoded as xn--j6w193g to Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation
Limited as a Country Code Top Level Domain.

Whereas (in Chinese) is a string that has successfully completed the
string evaluation portion of the IDN ccTLD fast track process.

Whereas ICANN has determined that the proposal is on behalf of a
country or territory that is currently listed in the ISO 3166-1
standard, and therefore eligible to be delegated Country Code Top
Level Domains under current policy.

Whereas the string applied for delegation is proposed to be used by
the applicant in a manner consistent with the country or territory
for which they were approved in the string evaluation process.

Whereas ICANN has reviewed the delegation request and has determined
that the proposal would be in the interests of the local and global
Internet communities.

Resolved, reference, that the proposed delegation of the dot (in
Chinese) to Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited is
approved.

>>PETER DENGATE THRUSH: Thank you, Jean-Jacques. Is there a
seconder for that resolution? I see Ray Plzak is seconding that.
Jean-Jacques, I am going to proceed on the assumption that we agree
that all of the things that were said in relation to the first and
the acclamation also apply in relation to these. So I am going to
move to putting that resolution. All those in favor of this
resolution, please raise your hands.

Any opposed?

Any abstentions?

And we note Kuo-Wei is abstaining. Thank you. I will declare that
resolution carried.

Thank you very much.

Re: Chinese Delegation to be announced

IDG News Service - Web site operators will be able to register domain names written entirely in Chinese characters, including the final characters to the right of the last dot, in a matter of months.

Until now, site operators could register Web sites in the Chinese country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) using Chinese characters for all except the final ".cn".

Re: Chinese Delegation to be announced

It is very funny to read such tripe.

Tech journalism is very sad field.
No more PC reviews and Windows software to review.

Maybe Apple apps and social network reviews can sustain them.

When the root zone entry occurs, the 'English only' buckaroos and banshees will commence their nonsense again.

'matter of months'...
as Bugs Bunny would say after biting a carrot...

what a maroooon ....
