The ICANN meetings in Luxembourg were hot but good. Lots accomplished here. The ccNSO has put together some fairly agile accountability frameworks that will hopefully be the start of better metrics – on behalf of ICANN/IANA and on behalf of the ccTLD administrators. This has been deadlocked for a long period of time by a number of issues, and Chris Disspain, among others, as really untangled the mess.
There is no perfect, but what seems to be the case is that there may be a solution where there is equity to the dissatisfaction on both sides.
Anyway, I have written an article on CircleID about this event.
