NTIA cedes root zone control

In one of the worst written stories I've ever seen in Ars, it's announced
that -- in one of the best take-out-the-trash moments in Internet history
(make the announcement not only on a Friday, but *during a NANOG*) -- NTIA
is ceding control of the root DNS zone.

The article very carefully does not say *to whom*; though it implies that
it's ICANN.

If that's the case, then I'm not sure there's actually, y'know, *news*
here. But...

Why is that dated Mar ch 14, 2014??


Well, crap.

My apologies, all, for not checking the damn dateline; I won't tell
you what popped that story up in front of me, cause I'd be too

And I don't think BCP38 was gonna help me here. :-}

Have a nice weekend...

er… this is no longer news… back in -MAY-… it was:


Neca eos omnes. Deus suos agnoscet.

And the seventh seal is broken...

(make the announcement not only on a Friday, but *during a NANOG*)

dunno where this rubbish came from, but nanog was mon-wed
