Yep, hide the kids. No asterisk today. Today I get to ask a real question.
So what does a Clusterfuck Really Look like? Seems clusterfucks are the new normal. Got insurance?
But I'm not going to get political.
So what does a Clusterfuck Really Look like?
"In the event a Fortune 500 company network infrastructure fails to work because of collision, the damages that just one company could suffer could easily exceed all of ICANN assets."
First of all that might be a breath of fresh air.
But what happens if this untested .whatever results in collisions and crashes?
"Paul Rosenzweig, Esq from the law firm of Chertoff Group & David Fagan, Covington was on hand to tell everyone the consequences and potential liability that ICANN, new gTLD’s registries, backend providers and even registrars might face if all new gTLD’s are allowed to go to delegation without any attempted mitigation for collisions and collisions actually occur resulting in large corporate networks to go down or existing domains to stop resolving.
To summarize Mr.Rosenzweig comments now that the collision report is out ICANN and everyone else in the food chain of likely defendants are on notice that this issue may cause damage to companies, ICANN cannot sit by without taking some action."
Now I have said Berkens is like having your own research staff.
The motivation came from this post he did yesterday.
So in case you want to know what a clusterfuck looks like, we may still be on the verge of seeing one. Chances are not high, but then again, this is a TEST!! If it goes south, it's a clusterfuck.
And guess what. This may only be one of many possible clustrfucks coming to an Internet near you.
Y2K? Maybe. then again, maybe not.
