.xxx

ICANN has approved in principle the creation of .xxx as a new top level domain for the Internet.

I think this is a good move as it creates an area of the Internet which filters can reliably block for children, without having false positives that most filters use. Of course not all adult sites will move there but I suspsect a fair few will.

Also while on ICANN good to see that ICANN Board are not just blindly voting to give Verisign .net for another six years. The process has been seriously flawed, and criticised by even the Chairman of the group which drew up the evaluation criteria.
