@rysiek centralized wouldn't be that bad without the massive commercial conversion of ICANN that happened in the past few years.
@rysiek Is this regarding dot-org, or going beyond just that?
@dredmorbius mainly about dot-org
@rysiek Did you actually find someone that could provide some insight about .org?
@xeno yes. a bit. It's complicated. But the main questions are:
- was the decision to sell made *before* the removal of the .org price cap?
- are any of the people who were involved in this decision involved in the company that .org was sold to?
- technically ICANN has a way to block the sale indefinitely; will they do so?
Some relevant links:
@rysiek Thanks for the links, this was interesting. And this all makes me very angry and I'm having rage-induced dreams of forking it all.
I had the feeling with the (extension) of the whole gTLD nonsense back then that it would eventually turn into a money-shitshow.
Domain names should get cheaper as technology progresses, not the other way around…
