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.

Despite the very short time frame in which it was organized, only a month from announcement to meeting, there were some very good presentations. I'll just hit some highlights here; all of the papers and slides are on their web site at
namecollisions.net.

Peter Pan Coin Money

Code is Law - Larry Lessig
MtGox finally collapsed, although for a reason I didn't anticipate: software bugs. Something called "transaction malleability" allowed crooked MtGox users to trick MtGox into believing that their withdrawals hadn't worked, so MtGox reissued them. This continued over about three years, during which time the crooks stole about 700,000 bitcoins from the wallet where MtGox kept most of its customers' deposits without them noticing.
