Internationalized Domain Names!

Good news everybody!

Internationalised Domain Names have been released. Fantastic huh? What? You aren’t impressed. Oh. I see. Well. Maybe you should have a read of this article.

Pretty interesting read on the requirement to implement IDNs and how ICANN has introduced them without causing problems.

Internationalization of the internet means that the internet is equally accessible from all languages and scripts

It will be good to see the level of penetration this gathers. I think its a positive move toward unified global access to the internet.

Even more entertaining is one of the comments:

Why are gamers and other Netizens excluded from ICANN MeatSpace Face-2-Face meetings ?

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone seriously refer to ‘MeatSpace’ before. Made me chuckle.
