The best of news from ICANN
I am absolutely positely ecstatic with the news that URLs can be completely in other scripts. This is important news because it will make it that much more easy to use the Internet. Many people do not know a language that is written in the Latin script and so far they have been forced to use this script in order to use the Internet.
This will no longer be the case.
The Wikimedia Foundation wants to be the number five in reach in all countries in the world. They spend a lot of effort in making our software more usable. This is an easy and obvious way to reach out to so many more people. This video explains what it is, the BBC in its reporting explains how it helps .. truly this is one solution that is obvious and welcome and, it will bring us more people to our Wikipedias, Wiktionaries and other projects.
This is truly great news.
