The result of the ICANN meeting has been published, announcing
a timeline for the creation of new generic top-level Internet domains.

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.

The Enredo mailing list of ALC network administrators
( )
dedicated several mails (in Spanish) to the issues of that meeting and
offer a minutes of its annual meeting in Mexico.
