The CEO and president of ICANN has quit.
Rod Beckstrom tweeted within the last hour:
I have decided to wrap up my service at ICANN July 2012. Press release soon.
Many in the ICANN community kinda knew this was coming.
Over the coming hours, expect to read a lot of people question whether the words “I have decided” are strictly accurate.
UPDATE: I’ve covered the story in more depth for The Register.
