Floating Integrity Registrar

Richard Henderson has put forward an interesting idea on the At-large-discuss mailing list. There are three big obstacles lie ahead for his plans - funding, ICANN policy and making the business case work.

First and foremost, gaining accreditation and certification isn't a trivial exercise - it requires time and capital. Second, 20% of revenue is a big slice for any company to donate - especially one that wants to play in such a competitive space. Lastly, I have to wonder if ICANN policy can be truly supportive of such a lofty goal. While it is one thing to desire that registrants feel safe, the current policy infrastructure doesn't completely support these goals.

I would however welcome his team at the registrar table to work together on that last niggly point. ;)

Request for Transfer Proposal Comments...

As I mentioned a bit back, it would be especially useful to hear from any/all members of the community concerning the status of the current proposal that the Registrar Constituency has tabled with the DNSO Transfers Task Force. The proposal consists of two parts - the motion, and the Best Practices document that was adopted almost unanimously by the Registrar Constituency. These documents have been on the table for a number of months now, and it has only been recently that substantive comments have been forthcoming.

Moved Crap to Make Room for Stuff.

Created a new cat today for some of the pop culture things that cross my path every once in a while. It let me get some of the crap out of this category (which leaves me more room for crap like this entry ;)
