Addressing Authorities Will Tackle Internet Keywords


"When RealNames links an Internet keyword to an existing Internet address, Internet surfers using Microsoft's Internet Explorer can visit the address by simply typing in the keyword (e.g. ACME) rather than the entire name (e.g. ACME.com)."

" The board, which makes all final ICANN decisions, will look to determine how and whether ICANN should craft addressing policies to account for the growing extent of higher-layer naming activities."

is bill gates trembling or smirking?

Should be trembling, but is probably smirking.
