Hi Kurt & All-

I work for Facebook, where I lead our DNS strategy and management activities  and fight IP infringement and fraud.  Our main interest in RDS and ICANN  is to keep our platform and our products safe for our 2.5 billion users. 

I have been in the industry for over 15 years, having previously worked at ICANN as the Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, and, before joining ICANN, served as the General Counsel of MarkMonitor.  While at ICANN, I worked closely with the EWG on Registration Directory Services, and gained deep knowledge of the WHOIS issues, consensus policy development, and the ICANN contracts.  

I am representing the Business Constituency on this group, and am looking forward to working with you all.  

All the best,

Margie Milam

    Hello Everyone: 
    I hope you don’t mind that I write to you informally from time to time on matters that come to mind where I think it would be of benefit to communicate immediately and not wait for meetings. 
    In the interest of the meeting tomorrow going smoothly, I want to call your attention to one item in the agenda and “Welcome” note that were sent yesterday. 
    We have replaced the typical introductory remarks where we go around the table and allow each member to introduce themselves. That would take over an hour of the two-hour session and I want to make better use of your time. 
    Instead, 2-3 minutes will be allotted to each group to describe its goals for this collaboration and whatever else the members want to describe:e.g.,  the names of the members or any challenges / opportunities they face. Please select a member of your group to speak for all of you. I have also asked that each member send in a brief “bio” (2-4 sentences) that we can post in the team wiki pages. (We have received one so far.)
    Thank you for making this adjustment. 
    Also, I aspire to start the meeting right at the appointed hour. Please login to the meeting slightly before that time. I have sat through many meetings that start late, calculating the combined hourly rate of attendees waiting for the meeting to start. Thanks in advance for making your best efforts here. I certainly understand you have professional matters that must be addressed and might delay your entry from time to time.
    I hope you found this useful. I welcome your feedback at anytime. My contact information is below.
