ICANN Gets its Contract Renewed By U.S. Government [bbc.co.uk]
The body that oversees the internet's address books has had its contract renewed by the US government.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' (Icann) initial application for contract renewal was rejected the US Department of Commerce.

Details of the renewed contract are scant, but many believe Icann has pledged to be more open about how it is run and how it spends its money.

The three-year contract will see Icann overseeing the net's biggest expansion.

This is hardly a surprise, but with the recent expansion one hopes there might be a bit more oversight and accountability put in place.
