ICANN: Relaunch of the entire com/net/org namespace feasible
ICANN might be facing problems launching the gTLD namespace, what with the TAS Labs product being meticulously repaired – but the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers isn’t short of any new ideas.
“People are complaining, that even with the launch of gTLDs there isn’t enough opportunity for those born in recent years to grab premium domains in com, net and org,” said Frances Bacon on behalf of ICANN.
“So we ran some tests with physicists in CERN Switzerland and it seems feasible to utilize Einstein’s theory in DNS”, added Bacon, shuffling her papers for another press conference.
The method of quantum domain resolution – or QDR for short – would require the construction of a parallel universe, albeit in domains.
The co-existence, in other words, of the same domains in different dimensions.
With careful QDR programming, Facebook.com would be both a social network and a gag site to post awkward pictures of childhood, for example.
“No doubt at ICANN and particularly, TAS Labs, we employ some of the finest minds in the domain industry,” said the CEO, Rod Beckstrom.
“Despite my departure from ICANN in a couple of months, I’m very excited that this happens during my watch and very proud of the ICANN employees, colleagues, friends, sponsors and my cousins in Albuquerque – hey, Stan and Stacey!” added Beckstrom, waving to the camera.
Quantum domain resolution is expected to revolutionize browsers as well; Mozilla is already working on the beta version of Firefox QDR and Microsoft is taking slow but sure steps as well.
