Milton Mueller has posted a response to Ben Edelman’s study of .cc, .ws, .tv registrations over on ICANNwatch. While occasionally a bit harsh in tone, Milton makes a number of valid points about Ben’s conclusions. In a semi-anonymous comment to the article, he also points to a study of content provided under .info which undermines the conclusions of the Berkman study, by proving that a more desirable string (.info) can fairly rapidly gather 5 times the number of registrations of the open ccTLDs, as well as a significant number of “real” websites, as he writes.
