Will ICANN grow up?

Just read this opinion on ICANN taking over from IANA, and it sounds like a George situation.

What do you folks think?

ICANN is a crufty organization that manages critical infrastructure that most people don’t understand, and it often does it in a way that is nonsensical (or at least only makes sense when looking up from the bottom of a deep justification well).

The fastest way to make a semi-technical normal collapse in horror is to describe first how DNS works and then how the internet’s TLD system is managed. ICANN Is a big part of that horror.
