- Things were doing "better" after Amazon had offered "Kindles" and other services to the South American Government: the status of the .AMAZON new gTLD had even been changed to "Evaluation Complete": not "delegated" but "completed". In simple words: it was not a definite "no" but a "probably yes";
- On the 26 of November, the ACTO wrote to the ICANN (PDF download) expressing concern on how the situation is being solved and the letter says:
- You don't answer our questions;
- We've not been consulted or have endorsed your proposal;
- Let's postpone our meeting (in a previous letter dated 22 of November).
- The ICANN CEO wrote to the GAC (PDF download) with a "Unfortunately, at this time, we regret to inform you that this facilitation process has been unsuccessful. The facilitation has not been able to reach its desired conclusion." there's then 4 pages of detailed explanation of the .AMAZON history.
I personally thought that we had a go for the .AMAZON new gTLD (and a few Kindles for the South American Government). Seems not...yet.
Now, can you read between the lines?
