To the 2,000-odd regular attendees of Internet naming and addressing system overseer ICANN, recent conversations have been focussed on meeting locations.
It all started with Panama. The home of the world-famous canal was scheduled to be the next ICANN meeting, in June 2016. Then Zika hit and forced a hasty change of plans. This week, at the close of ICANN’s 55th International meeting in Marrakech (Morocco), the Finnish capital Helsinki was confirmed as the replacement venue for ICANN 56.
