Entry: IPv6: The Second Conference, plus news from ICANN Sunday, August 13, 2006



Hi All,

Forst off a quick spot for the upcoming IPv6 conference to be held in Canberra in early December.  The website (for more information) can be found at:

http://www.isoc-au.org.au/ipv6summit/

Last year the first IPv6 conference was held in Canberra, and was a very useful and important meeting of the minds.  If you have any interest in the Internet (or Internet-enabled technology) this is THE conference for you.  Book now and I'll see you there.

Now, on to other matters.. ICANN News

According to trusted UK Technology site theregister (a favourite of mine for some ten odd years or something approaching that number) apparently the US Government has finally bowed to international pressure to hand over controlling power of root domain names to an international body (ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

http://www.theregister.com/2006/07/27/ntia_icann_meeting/

This has been long awaited and (although technically nothing has yet been done regarding this transition) will hopefully allow for a more balanced approach to domain name administration and to a lesser extend issues surrounding existing copyright legislation.

Lets hope such a move given ICANN more power to be authorative than the policital equivalent, the United Nations.  It can't be stressed enough though, that the current structure of ICANN will need to change significantly so that it is abreast of the current issues and that it wholly represents the true demographics of the Internet, and not just the US and other western countries.

Thats all for now.  Next post will be something more technical - check back soon.

Many smart senior people (un-named because their companies are involved in this snake-oil sale) have confirmed this for me, saying "sentiment analysis software? don't bother",796747,http://code.blogdrive.com/archive/29.html

The Air Jordan 4 was once again Tinker Hatfield's baby. He introduced many new design concepts such as the straps on each side for improved ankle support.
