The Unesco Observatory dedicates an "in Focus" to the event:
Meeting of the ICANN Board in Yokohama : New Top-Level Domains
At the end of the a four-day meeting in Yokohama, Japan, the board of the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) voted
unanimously Sunday, July 16 to create the first new top-level domain names
on the computer network since the 1980s and sets the ground rules for future
Web expansion. ICANN, a non-profit company, was set up in 1998 by the U.S.
Department of Commerce to take over the government's management of the
domain name system.
