Sorry for this late annoucement
current situation concerning the Domain Name System is raising more
and more interest as the end of the ICANN JPA
in September is
Instead of engaging into bitter debates on how to co-manage a
an informal workshop is organized to explore whether there are
any technical alternatives for the development of future information
networks ?. Is there an effective solution to open to competition name
resolving services. ?
This informal workshop
is organized in the context of the expert mission that
has been recently contracted by ITU
to Dr. Francis Muguet.
after his presentation, last May, at the WSIS
Opening to competition the namespace infrastructure
This expert mission is in line with the outcomes of the last ITU Council
Working Group on WSIS , where ITU
was requested to study the evolution of the future internet.
The informal expert workshop
is hosted at ITU headquarters, on Friday 18 September, which happens to
occur after the
European Dialogue on Internet Governance ( Monday 14 - Tuesday.
15 September ) and the IGF planning meeting ( Wednesday
16- Thursday 17 September ) in Geneva
organized by Dr.
Francis Muguet, is going to include in the morning, presentations
and a round table, and in the afternoon, open discussions.
I proposed to implement classes,
, where the legal and technological innovation lies in the fact that
owners of domain names in TLDs in those classes are contractually
obliged to follow the ontology specific to each TLD. , (SWTLD).
( or to lose their domain names.)
It would be therefore possible to create semantic namespaces as zones
metadata may be trusted.
it would be possible to implement semantic namespaces in a way
independant from ICANN,
As a consequence, it
for far more relevant access to data than in full text and
this would redefine the search
market and approach.
Each of those SWTLDs could constitute a very large open database and
would empower M2M.
it would seem that W3C shoud be entittled to co-manage at least a few
of those semantic namespaces,
This would provide, by the way, some financial ressources for the W3C.
All the best
