Just to get a word in here about
Image Online Design. So that there is no misunderstanding. The public
overwhelming approved of their application last year. I ask you to go see the
amount of public comments they had on the public forum set up last year (see link
below) This company has been "vetted" through the public domain.
If this is not
unanimous consensus I don't know what is. Do you?
Image Online Design did
not build a registry to exploit the internet. They have been working to help build
it, and ensure that competition is alive and well. Just think for a minute
of the amount of competition Network Solutions had 5 years ago. None.
However an upstart company in 1995 called Image Online Design didn't think that was
right. Against all odds they built a registry to provide YOU and I, the internet
user some hope, that the dot WEB TLD would provide a unique address at an affordable
price. Mind you, they have done this, while working with IANA, and now ICANN.
Did you ever go to the original monthly IANA meetings to discuss DNS policy?
I didn't...but I know who did. His name is Christopher Ambler, the CTO of Image
Online Design. I believe John Frangie was there too. This sounds like
a company working for the internet, and not against it. Do not turn your backs
on them, otherwise you will spit in the face of every decent "techie" who tried to
make a difference with respect to the Domain Name System.
