Cerf seeks acolytes to carry the ICANN torch

Vint Cerf, like Tony Blair, is about to hang up his boots! However, unlike Tony Blair, Vint Cerf’s retirement is given coverage in The Register. The Register notes “many people have no idea just what ICANN does – it sets the technical standards for the internet, and is the closest thing to a government the internet has. Even fewer understand the open nature of ICANN participation.” The Register advises its easy to get involved, and directs to where to go to get involved. The article then refers to Cerf’s comments in the ICANN announcement about getting people involved.To read the full story in The Register click here. There is also an ICANN announcement available here, and a story on the ICANN Blog here.
