So according to RFE/RL, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN or the "nerdiest organization ever") will vote tomorrow on whether or not to allow non-Latin letters in Web site addresses. As we all know, currently, only Latin letters are used in addresses because Al Gore invented the Internet, and Al Gore is an English-speaking American. But for the last two years, ICANN has been considering expanding the Internet and allowing other scripts in Web addresses including Cyrillic and Asian characters. This could get complicated, because no matter what, punctuation symbols will still be used, and apparently the Latin "." is differnet from the Cyrillic "."

Not confusing at all...I say we go back to binary.

If the changes happens, we might all need: Latin, Chinese, Bulgarian, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, and Mongolian keyboads to navigate the internet?

Great.

Google.com or Gооgle.com (Which one uses cryllic letters?)

The 133t Hxkrz are going to have a field day.

There are only 10 kinds of technologists. Those who understand binary and those who do not.

So, I do not actually consider this may have success.
