>ICANN is turning out to be everything that I expected it would be.
>Fortunately, it does not have anything to do with IPv8 or IPv16.
>The current IPv4 Internet is a very small part of a very large
>puzzle. Hopefully, the ICANN can restrict their damage to that
>one section and the rest of us can continue to route around it.
>We will route around it in the same way that the current Internet
>routes around the traditional telecom monopolies. We will leverage
>off of the stable infrastructure, use it as scaffolding, and build a new
>network to help ensure freedom into the next century. Hopefully, we can
>build the new network faster than ICANN destroys the existing Internet.
>This is the challenge before us.
>I am happy to report that most of the engineering and testing is
>complete. At this point, we just have to continue to write code and
>documentation. I hope to use this opportunity to help transition the
>world from Java to C+@. I promise to help make it all open, free, and
>state of the art. That has been my plan since 1976 and I continue...
