Re: Fun and games at the ITU

Yeah. Apparently he was doing a big bitch and moan about how you can't get domain names in Arabic, and someone had to say "well, actually, you can".

The other funny one I heard was about a resolution that contained the phrase "and future technologies such as VOIP".

Re: Fun and games at the ITU

Another quote from Kisrawi:

ITU should be involved, for the time being, in conjunction with a reformed ICANN (if any) and other relevant bodies, in the approval of the rules related to gTLDs and sTLDs, in particular for what concerns multilingual top-level domain names (this is, use of IDN for gTLDs).
