Maybe ICANN really can't.

Maybe ICANN really can't. There may be a revolt among all those Europeans who think that they own their parts of the Internet. (Who do they think they are, anyway? Don't they realize that they're just electronic colonies of the US?)

Actually, I'm with them; I think ICANN is getting just a little too full of itself.

ICANN seriously needs to rethink their current battle plans. They wanted to widen the domain market with their new TLD's, but managed to effectively tighten it with too many restrictions and policies for registration. And now this whole country code debacle.

I love this quote, from David Post of ICANNWatch: "ICANN could wake up one morning, and the Internet has just moved someplace else."
