RE: [bc-gnso] Meet the seven people who hold the keys to worldwide internet security
Chris, Thanks for sending this; instructive and entertaining. I must say, though, the most compelling bit was this: "But once everyone has moved to the new, more secure system (this is expected in the next three to five years), the effects of losing or damaging the key would be far graver." As we move more of our lives online and to the cloud, the same can be said of our personal data. A good reminder to enact good data practices.

The reality is rather closer to The Office than The Matrix http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/feb/28/seven-people-keys-worldwide-internet-security-web Interesting and positive ICANN / DNSSEC article on today's UK Gardian newspaper, to end the ICANN week on happy PR note.
