Broadband Commission Report

http://www.broadbandcommission.org/D...report2012.pdf

"Indeed, if current growth rates continue, the total number of Internet users accessing the Internet in Chinese may overtake the number of Internet users predominantly using English in 2015." page 61

"In order to promote multilingualism on the Internet, the role of IDNs as a vital part of the ecosystem necessary to foster the growth of local languages online needs to be more fully appreciated." page 63

We've all known IDN have been a good and necessary thing for the last decade, that's what we've all punted on.

I'm not knocking the report, its actually very comprehensive and well written, and gives good coverage to IDNs, but at this stage of the game, we need action not reports. There is waiting and there is ... way too much waiting. Most of us here have suffered the latter with ICANT and VeriNoSign.
