ICANNWiki has been a part of ICANN culture for many years not only in terms
providing a clear, community-sourced, well-organized platform for newcomers
(as well as the not so new) to navigate through the oft-confusing acronyms
and industry jargon, but also for the community to keep up-to-date with
policy development and timely issues in the ICANN ecosystem. The intrinsic
value of a trusted neutral resource independent of the ICANN organization
that lays out industry fundamentals in a user-friendly way cannot be
highlighted enough - the ICANN community has recognized this throughout the

Add to the fact that there are even fewer resources that provide this basic
information in an easy to navigate manner on the industry in Chinese for
Chinese stakeholders to become aware, learn, understand and ultimately
participate in the ecosystem, makes it an important resource for many in the
APAC community. We at DotAsia recognize this and has supported ICANNWiki
with Chinese translations on key articles.

The complete withdrawal of ICANN's modest funding (compared to other
expenditures) to ICANNWiki will undoubtedly jeopardize the existence of this
indispensable community resource, a loss that will be keenly felt by all.
We urge ICANN to, at a minimum, continuing funding ICANNWiki at a reasonable
level that enables the project to continue to provide its invaluable
services to the community.
