IDN in recent Global News

International domain names were the focus of an AFP news story earlier this month (link below as carried in The Japan Times).

Aside from the gist of the article saying progress is slow, they somehow never used the term International Domain Name or the acronym IDN.

The article explains "It's thanks to ICANN — the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers — that when you type an address at the top of the screen, your computer can find the webpage you're looking for. These days it's theoretically possible to type an address in more than 150 scripts, including obscure ones like ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, and watch the page load."

So they interviewed Göran Marby, CEO of ICANN.

Overall, a rather weak article, but likely of interest to IDN Forum! Any further thoughts?

The japantimes wants me to register in order to read the article. Here is the same article that can be read without need to register https://news.kuwaittimes.net/website...guage-barriers

Nowadays there are quite a lot of public articles which do elaborate on IDNs. Here is one such article https://www.bbc.com/future/article/2...m-the-internet

Re: IDN in recent Global News

I've found good discussions around Russian & Chinese usage, but it seems most Western nations are disinterested in the IDN world, even though the Scandinavian languages, French, Spanish, German, etc. widely use additional characters (or accented characters) classed as IDN. Older users became accustomed to workarounds...

Coordination Center for TLD .RU/.РФ (Координационный центр доменов .RU/.РФ) agitates for improved adoption of IDN, though they seem now mostly worried about wider acceptance of email addresses wholly using IDN - it seems assorted software can handle the web address but not the individual's mail address to the left of @
