ICANN punts… and scores!

Responding to ICANN‘s call for comments, I submitted a comment asking ICANN to reject the proposed changes to WHOIS. And they listened.

Actually, I doubt that it was my comment that made the difference, but kudos to everyone who took the time to give their input, even those that disagreed with me. (Note that link only includes those who commented through the online system rather than by email or other means). Internet governance doesn’t always work well–and maybe this is an odd example of it working–but at least this time, public input seemed to prevent a change I definitely thought would be for the worse.

Tip of the hat to Doc Searls for the initial call to arms.
