Yesterday Verisign sent ICANN a most interesting white paper called
New gTLD Security and Stability Considerations.
They also filed
with the SEC as an 8-K, a document that their stockholders should know about,
It's worth reading the whole thing, but in short, their well-supported opinion is that the net
isn't ready for all the new TLDs, and even if they were, ICANN's processes or lack
thereof will cause other huge problems.

A friend and I were corresponding about the many otherwise legitimate companies
who leak addresses to spammers, such as the Economist and the IEEE.
He was surprised to note that his Dropbox address was now getting spam, I looked
at the logs and what do you know, starting this Tuesday I was too, I just hadn't
noticed because it was all so spammy it got caught by content filters. Tsk, tsk.
Looking at previous mail, I don't see any of it coming from an ESP, so it seems
to have been an internal leak. Double tsk, tsk.
