I’m currently in Seoul, South Korea, for the ICANN meeting. Officially the meeting doesn’t start until tomorrow morning, however the venue hotel has been buzzing for the last two days.
If you’re not familiar with how ICANN works then a lot of the meetings may seem terribly confusing, as the ICANN community loves its acronyms!
Over the weekend there have been quite a few meetings involving the GNSO (Generic Names Supporting Organisation).
Topics being discussed include new gTLDs (ie. new domain extensions such as .gay, .sport,.nyc etc.,), IDN ccTLDs (see some of my previous posts) and the usual mishmash of updates on existing policies.
I’ll be posting a few more updates from Seoul over the course of the week and hopefully I’ll have some nice photos to go with them!
