ICANN’s web site gets a minor face lift, but there’s a long way to go.
It’s not a big change, and it’s welcome, but why can’t there be a reasonably usable ICANN web site?

The social networking icons look a bit trendier, too.
Unfortunately what hasn’t changed is the byzantine content structure. Former ICANN staffer Kieren McCarthy was working on an overhaul of the site to make it easier to find information, but it looks like that costly effort was abandoned when he left.
The drop down navigation still has 136 selections (yes, I counted them). Does “Vint Cerf’s Legacy Letter to ICANN Community” really need to be linked to from the home page?
