In Pictures: Golden Gobblers 2012 - Angry birdbrai...
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers earns a special collective Golden Gobbler this year. Not only did ICANN open the floodgates to possibly hundreds of new top-level domains (sowing the seeds of massive future confusion while making a tidy $350 million on application fees), it introduced, then abandoned a series of laughably inept schemes to ensure that all 1,930 applications would be considered fairly. My favorite: the digital archery contest, which measured how accurately applicants logged into ICANN's website at a predetermined time, give or take a few milliseconds.
These guys make the Keystone Kops look like Navy Seal Team 6.
