I am very interested. 


One immediate thing I see visionally is that this is labeled the GNSO web
site. Does that mean that there would be a GNSO Policy section that is
focused on the GNSO Policy Council in some detail? As we all know, all SOs
are actually quite unique from each ohter, and in particular, the GNSO  is
very much a sum of many parts -- e.g. Constituencies. In the past, the DNSO
web site was really a policy web site, NOT an SO site. 


I think it is important that the constituencies maintain their own identity
that is suitable to what their key priorities are. How is that envisioned? 


Is this intended to be the space also for the At Large  Advisory Committee?
the ALAC is not a GNSO subsidiary, as we all realize. Is this intended to be
a template for both SOs and AC's?


It looks like this is members only. Is that actually correct? We don't want
to restrict information, right? Or was that for any section which is members
only? and can we clarify what p

Dear all,


As you may know I am the BC member of the Communications and Coordination
Work Team. (CCT).  


Improving the GNSO web site is one of the primary missions of the
Communications Coordination Team.  


We produced a business requirements document some months ago that was
forwarded to the consistency. 


At a more practical level the CCT has made significant strides on the
website work. This included interviewing power users about needs and
preferences, and obtaining input from the Revere group who are under
contract to ICANN producing a professional usability study. 


The ICANN chosen platform is an open source program call DRUPAL which by
chance I have experience with this program.


I went to MdR for a few days for a "design scrum" working with Scott Pinzon,
ICANN Communications Director, and Ken Bour, and also meeting with Kieren
and Marc Salvatierra. (Webmaster)


We now have "wireframes" of what the new website structure may look like
(see one attached).


Scott Pinzon, ICANN Communications Director, and Ken Bour, also an ICANN
staff consultant, would be willing to do a one hour Adobe Connect
presentation if any BC members would like to preview the current work
status, and so that you can express your opinions as to the design, layout
and usefulness.  


Please respond back to me to let me know if you have an interest in this.
If there is enough interest, we can pick a time. 


This invitation has been sent to other constituencies as well. There will
also be some form presentations at Seoul.
