ICANN was in the news a while back when they rejected a request to open up a new top-level domain name dedicated to sex. It was an odd and somewhat boring debate about protecting children (some saying it would, some saying it wouldn’t), moral decay and all the usual suspects arrived to promote their particular flavour of cool-aid. Since then, there has been some grumblings that ICANN has allowed lobby groups to influence what should have been a technical discussion.
A new web site for the Keep the Core Neutral campaign has been launched to raise awareness about the growing lobbyist activities at ICANN. I’d encourage everyone to consider the issues and make you own judgment.
