There's nothing like a poke with a sharp stick Internet

Last week I blogged about a white paper Verisign sent ICANN called New gTLD Security and Stability Considerations in which they listed a bunch of reasons that ICANN isn't ready to roll out lots of new TLDs. Among the reasons were that several of the services the new GTLDs are required to use aren't available yet, including the Emergency Back End Registry Operators (EBEROs), who would take over the registry functions for a TLD whose operator failed. They were supposed to have been chosen in mid-2012.

By complete coincidence, yesterday ICANN announced that they had chosen the three Emergency Back End Registry Operators. I can't wait to see what happens next week.
