The NGO and Academic ICANN Study (NAIS) has released its
final report on reforming ICANN.  The report calls for an
open at-large membership with strong participation in policy
matters and representation on the ICANN board equal to the
total number of directors selected by Supporting
Organizations.  Report at

A New Player in the Domain-Name Game 
As the Internet landscape grows, it's both more necessary and more
difficult to find out who's who online. The "whois" lookup service
has always let Internet users investigate who owns an Internet domain
-- the dot-com moniker (or .org., .net, .edu or whatever) at the end
of an Internet address -- but it's often slow and confusing to use.
Whonami (http://www.whonami.com) digs into the same database as other
whois sites, but works faster and simpler. Enter a domain name
without any prefixes such as "www," and the site returns the usual
details -- contact info for its owner, along with brief info about
the domain's Internet providers. Or enter a term by itself, without
any three- or two-letter extension, to see who owns associated
domains in dozens of different commercial and country-specific
registries, from Ascension Island (.ac) to South Africa (.za).
