Focuses posts on commentary and criticism of ICANN, which manages the Domain Name System. "Our job is to serve as a central point of reference, a kind of hill overlooking the often-chaotic information landscape, from which anyone seeking a better understanding of these developments can survey the ever-changing terrain. We have no particular viewpoint to push or axes to grind; we will offer commentary and criticism from a wide variety of different perspectives, guided only by our belief in the power of ideas and informed discussion and debate to shape events and institutions."
