Dear All,

Had a conference call with Daniel Nanghaka (it was 2am for him) to
discuss the O&E presentation and came up with some other ideas for
engagement that I put on the wiki at
Please add your thoughts and ideas on this wiki page:

Here's are the ideas:

To solve engagement, have ALSes to care about and be involved in DNS
related issues at

* local level -- e.g policies that govern your ccTLD ; DNS reliability
; DNS security (DNSSEC) ; WHOIS privacy of ccTLD domain registration
* regional level  -- e.g DNS reliability in the region ; DNS security
* global level -- e.g IANA stewardship transition ; CCWG on
Accountability ;  many locals use gTLDs and therefore are governed by
the policies (e.g WHOIS privacy) that gTLD registries set with

If ALSes don't care about DNS related issues at the local level, they
are unlikely to care about global DNS related issues.

So to get ALSes, engaged, have to
- raise awareness of possible local DNS issues ;
- ask ALSes input/opinion on their regional ICANN strategy
- help foster discussions about other local/regional ICT/IG issues -
e.g net neutrality

To raise ICANN issues for ALSes to respond to, have to get ALSes to
understand the impact of the ICANN issue to them, and create
compelling content for them to see the impact of the ICANN issue to

Other engagement challenges:

- getting connected to At-Large calls ; persons can't be reached on
their phones, persons don't have sufficient net connectivity.

Another suggestion to foster engagement in WGs:
- A WG should be able to select a regional active member to attend a
regional ICANN F2F meeting.
