Multilingual Internet Group to investigate internet-usability for the next billion netizens
The next billions of internet-users use Arabic, Urdu and Farsi as their native language and alphabets– what is their current experience of web-usability?
London May 15, 2012. A new Multilingual Internet is coming in 2013, one that will open the doors to many billions of customers, citizens, correspondents and contributors that currently are excluded by the dominance of English and the western alphabet. Although pages may be translated, most web addresses demand ASCII script-based on the western alphabet, making it harder for those not familiar with these characters to navigate the web effectively.
To further understand the issue, and provide insight for effective solutions, the Multilingual Internet Group www.MLiGrp.com has launched an extensive market study of Internet usability focused on the Arabic, Urdu and Farsi regions, communities, and languages.
The study will aim to research the usability of the Internet to date, identify the remaining challenges for the coming Multilingual Internet and their coming multi billion Netizens.
The study is not limited to Internet users in the states where Arabic, Urdu and Farsi are generally used, but will include native speakers of these languages all over the world for whom their language has always been an extension of their heritage and identity especially on the Internet.

Is NTIA's Transition Decision the Right Dose of Chemotherapy to Repair Trust in Multistakeholderism
On March 14 2014 the U.S. Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intent to Transition Key Internet Domain Name Functions to the global multistakeholder community.
Proper, transparent, accountable U.S. NTIA's Transition of its oversight of the Internet to something other than a single country oversight is something I have always believed in and spoke and written about repeatedly for years and is long overdue. But NTIA's March 14th declared intent to transfer "Key" Internet roles is not only very ambiguous but leads to new questions and concerns that must be answered before anything starts taking place. At the very least The NTIA's declaration is a calculated doze of chemotherapy to repair "Trust in Multistakeholder and current Internet Governance models" that were never ready for prime time in the first place but which have been seriously damaged by the ripples of the US NSA spying scandals uncovered by the Snowden revelations.
