Unfortunately I won't be able to make the conference I wanted to take this opportunity to remind people that nobody is forcing you to play Nominet's game. Nominet have done a brilliant job of focusing attention on the specifics of "how" .uk should be introduced, not on "if" it should. A first class piece of media manipulation, which has not only framed the debate, but buried the core issues behind straw man arguments about security. But that doesn't mean you have to play along! If you object to .uk itself, make that objection heard loud and clear in public (in front of a live and web audience) Right now, much of the debate is like arguing with a cannibal about whether it's ok to just nibble an arm or a leg - we need to get back to "NO EATING PEOPLE - period!" territory... Best of luck, everyone.
