And Then There Was the Issue of Time

June 2008 Paris, France: "The Board of ICANN today approved a recommendation that could see a whole range of new names introduced to the Internet's addressing system."
"The Board today accepted a recommendation from its global stakeholders that it is possible to implement many new names to the Internet, paving the way for an expansion of domain name choice and opportunity" said Dr Paul Twomey, President and CEO of ICANN.
"A final version of the implementation plan must be approved by the ICANN Board before the new process is launched. It is intended that the final version will be published in early 2009."
Today, 28 months after that announcement, applicants continue to wait patiently for all of the "t's" to be crossed and all of the "i's" to be dotted in the final Applicant Guidebook and the announcement for the start date for ICANN to accept applications. On one hand, the time it has taken can be explained when viewed through the prism of the detailed work that was needed to ensure a stable and secure process; on the other hand 2¼ years later is a very long time.
