Now there's a business opportunity ICANN

I see that Afilias has reserved SLAVE.BLACK as a premium domain, presumably to be auctioned to the highest bidder. I'm trying to figure out what the business model is.

(Some names, including a lot of offensive words, are permanently reserved by ICANN, but this isn't one of them.)

The replacement for WHOIS is surprisingly close ICANN
About a year ago I
blogged about the IETF WEIRDS working group which was working on a more modern replacement for the hoary WHOIS service. At the time I said it was making surprising progress. Perhaps less surprisingly, the progress has been quite slow, but WEIRDS seems to be close to finishing its work.

More on Why Iran is not going to lose the .IR domain ICANN
Earlier this month I wrote about some
ill considered legal moves by an attorney who imagined that ICANN could be forced to turn over the .IR domain in a long running case against the Iranian government.

Why Iran is not going to lose the .IR domain ICANN

Press reports say:

A United States court on Tuesday effectively awarded a group of American and Israeli victims of Iranian terror the rights to the .ir domain, the suffix used to identify Iranian websites, along with all of Iran's IP addresses.
While the court and the lawsuit are real, it is extremely unlikely that .IR is going anywhere.

A little whois help ICANN
For a long time, the easiest way to look up the WHOIS information for a domain has been to use whois-servers.net, which has kept a list of a lot of WHOIS servers that you can look up in the DNS. To look up something in, say blah.tld you point your WHOIS program at blah.whois-servers.net. Many open source WHOIS clients will do that automatically, or with a flag. But with all the new TLDs added every week, they're falling behind.
