Those who read the tech blogs and tech news sites regularly already know what the title of this post means. For those not involved this particular piece of news might be of interest, too. The internet authorities have decided, that they want allow all kind of characters in domain names. Of particular interest might be the Chinese, Russian, Japanese and Arabic characters. However they also want to introduce other obscure scripts. About 100,000 new characters could be introduced to domain names if the current plan will put into practice.
There is no date when the Chinese characters finally hit the domain names in practice, but I guess it might happen in less than one year. When this happens I might register the domain name 学中文吧.中国 additional to yolearnchinese.com. This also opens up for funny domain names like 我爱台湾和.中国. I guess other more creative people will come up with more exaggerated insensitive political incorrectness in Chinese domain names.
