IDNForums members had a very big surprise when Tina Dam the director of ICANN’s IDN program joined to graciously answer questions by members.
One of the biggest concerns to IDN members is why does the media portray IDN Domains as coming out in 2008 when together IDNF members have at least hundreds of thousands of IDN Domains & even fully functional IDN based sites.
Tina: That is a mistake and not the intention at all. We are well aware of the IDN implementation at the second level of various TLDs. The experience from this implementation and use is what is driving the IDN TLD development. I will try to see if we can find a way to make this more obvious.I expect this to be one of the longest threads on IDNF

And it’s a unanimous feeling of security in knowing that one of the biggest group of IDN investors may have their voices heard.
I miay have to post this on the Japanese social groups to see if I could get questions I might not have thought of.
Again IDNF says thank you TIna.
