Short Take: Six more ICANN board seats filled

Six more board seats have been filled for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which manages the Net's address system. Vint Cerf, one of the Net's fathers and the only person from the United States, was elected for a two-year term. Also selected were World Wide Web Consortium chairman Jean-Francois Abramatic; British Telecom's Philip Davidson; Rob Blokzijl, former chairman of Europe's regional Internet registry; Ken Fockler, a computer consultant from Canada; and Pindar Wong, who founded a Japanese ISP.
