au: Domain name entrepreneur declared bankrupt
CONTROVERSIAL internet domain name entrepreneur Brad
Norrish has been declared bankrupt, but the brother of
his former business partner is still selling domain
names. Domainwatch.org, a self-appointed watchdog of
Mr Norrish's operations has warned businesses to keep
a keen eye out for domain name marketing spam that
closly resembles an invoice.

us: DNS service promises safer, faster browsing
A San Francisco start-up is promising faster, safer
and smarter Web surfing -- but there's a catch.
OpenDNS says its free address-lookup service makes Web
sites load faster, and that it blocks malicious,
data-thieving phishing schemes and other threats.
Furthermore, the service corrects obvious typos in
URLs, sending people to the site they intended to
visit, it said.

Policy needed to stop lapsed-domain name hijacking,
says ICANN working group
After raising the question of misuse of hastily
relinquished domain names, ICANN?s recent meeting in
Morocco got down to some deeper discussion of the
?monetisation? of names ? the way they acquire more
than their ?face value? and are traded on a secondary
market.

OpenDNS: It's Not SiteFinder for Obvious Reasons By
Mark Jeftovic
The first salvo on NANOG this morning in response to
the launch of OpenDNS was a predictable lambasting
along the lines of "here comes SiteFinder II".
Fortunately the follow-ups were quick to point out
that OpenDNS was a far cry from SiteFinder for the
obvious reason that people have the choice to use it,
nobody had a choice with SiteFinder. ...the real magic
here can come from it's use in phishing mitigation.

ICANN President's Strategy Committee Consultation with
the ICANN Community: Improving the Inherent Strength
of the Multi-stakeholder Model
At its December 2005 ICANN meeting, the ICANN Board,
emphasizing the importance of the bottom-up ICANN
processes, noted that the ICANN community could also
'benefit from the advice of a group responsible for
making observations and recommendations concerning
strategic issues facing ICANN.' In light of this, the
ICANN Board passed a resolution for the President to
appoint a President's Strategy Committee. This
Committee plays an important role in providing
observations and recommendations concerning strategic
issues facing ICANN and contributing to ICANN's
strategic planning process, which occurs in
consultation with the community.

Why I'm Standing for the ICANN Board and Why I've made
My Statement Public by Kieren McCarthy
The number of applications this year for the seven
positions within ICANN has been so low that the NomCom
has gone to the trouble of printing up pamphlets,
holding a public meeting at Marrakech and extending
the deadline by a fortnight.

.mobi takes on .com
Try accessing a website on your cellphone. Besides the
slow connections, chances are that most of the content
would not be visible on the small screen. It makes for
a very unpleasant experience since most Web pages
aren?t designed for cellphones or mobile devices. This
is all set to change with a start-up Dublin-based
Mobile Top Level Domain (mTLD) accepting registrations
? approved by ICANN ? for ?.mobi? addresses (similar
to .com).
