(((ICANN approves loosened rules on top-level domains; remember the old usenet days? i mean the really old ones? do they still do that?)))

According to the BBC:
The net's regulator, Icann, voted unanimously to relax the strict rules on so-called "top-level" domain names, such as .com or .uk. 

The decision means that companies could turn brands into web addresses, while individuals could use their names.

Under the new plans, there could be thousands of domain names based on any string of letters.
The smart one will register .diediedie ASAP. Clearly that's not me or I'd have done something about it before posting on my blog, even if no one reads it.
