DNS: article in today's australian - business section regarding DNS.

in the last month there have been two articles in the australian press
that i'm aware of that have contained what i'd consider serious inaccuracies
in their content.

the latest today was in the australian on the front page of the business
section (p17). the article is also available by searching the australian's
web site at: http://www.australian.aust.com/ the article is called:
"Net players happy to go IT alone".

in the article is states that: "Peter Gerrand, chief executive officer of
Melbourne IT, which administers the industry body responsible for ironing
out problems with domain names."

this implies that MIT administers ADNA. this is not the case.

& the role described for ADNA as one of attempting to stop governmental
control & court cases is short-sighted to say the least.

also confusing is the statement that the Electoral Commission
were represented within ADNA. where does this info. come from?

the dispute resolution process referred to can only refer to the process
MIT have setup for .com.au. or am i dreaming here?

MIT != ADNA. they are not the same thing.

it appears much of the article was written from the perspective of .com.au
but applied to the entire .au namespace. the quote regarding requirements
for obtaining a domain name suggest this is the case.

some comments from those quoted in the article & the journalist
concerned would be appreciated. 

what would be good for the australian DNS is if ADNA could concentrate
on some of their stated aims by progressing issues such as competition
in the existing .com.au namespace & sorting out the structure of the
organisation itself.

(speaking only for herself)
