How digital archery threatens to become the organization's Battle of Hastings
Harold's demise as captured in the Bayeux Tapestry: is ICANN about to make the same mistake as the last Anglo-Saxon king of England?
Harold Godwin's army was already tired. The same day word arrived that Duke William II had landed on the English coast seeking the throne, the king's men had fought at the Battle of Stamford Bridge.
