Limitations of review of ICANN's transparency and accountability

Internet “governing” body ICANN continues to ignore me, but I haven’t forgotten them, and I haven’t given up on either my attempts to report on ICANN’s mis-allocation of top-level Internet domains “.aero” and “.travel” to the travel industry — to the exclusion and detrimaent of travellers — or my attempts to hold ICANN to the standards of transparency and acocuntability in its own bylaws.

In its latest round of self-congratulations, ICANN has commissioned (under a secret contract) a review of ICANN’s processes by an (unnamed) group of “independent” reviewers, meeting in secret.

My comments today on the limitations of this “independent review”, and ICANN’s continuing failure to follow any of its own rules, are here .

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
