I would be happy to have Adrian make his presentation as long as it is appreciably different than the deck we all saw in Beijing.  I am sure it has evolved, but can you confirm?

In fact, the rise of these kinds of associations may be market evidence of the need for and, perhaps, how the organization of the GNSO might be changed in the course of the up coming review.  It is clear that the prior segments are losing their stand-alone integrity as each constituency is in the process of taking on the characteristics of others.

We might find, in the discussion of the new association, a new nomenclature for the community that could lead to a more modern organization.

I have had a request from Adrian Kinderis (who some of you may know from his time as a councillor) to present the DNA to the Council in a 15 minute session over the weekend in Durban.


The Domain Name Association (DNA) is a new non-profit global business association that represents the interests of the domain name industry and it describes its mission as being to:


“Promote the interests of its members by advocating the use, adoption, and expansion of domain names as the primary tool for users to navigate the Internet.”


Please indicate any interest, lack of interest or neutrality on this.
