Dear all,

Please find below the bios of the Non-Commercial Stakeholder Group’s alternates. I am forwarding this along, as these representatives do not have posting privileges on our list.

Best wishes,


(in alphabetical order)

Collin Kurre

My name is Collin Kurre and I represent ARTICLE 19, a London-based human rights organization. In parallel to leading our ICANN engagement, I’m responsible for developing new tools and resources for assessing the human rights impacts of internet infrastructure providers, including registries/ars.

My engagement in DNS policy has steadily increased since 2015, when I became interested in ICANN while writing my master’s thesis on multistakeholder internet governance. Within the ICANN community, I’ve been primarily involved in the CCWG-Acc and the Working Party on ICANN and Human Rights (which I co-chair).

Look forward to creating what I hope will be a future-proof solution to this challenge.

David Cake

My name is David Cake, I am an experienced ICANN participant, having been a GNSO Councillor and Vice-Chair, and involved in multiple policy processes, most recently as one of the Vice-Chairs of the Next Generation RDS group that was suspended due to overlap with this group. I am a long time activist on concerns including privacy and digital rights, including around a decade as Chair of Electronic Frontiers Australia. Professionally I am a technical consultant with a computer science and programming background, currently mostly working for Red Piranha, an information security firm, and I am a part time PhD candidate at Curtin University. I am based in Perth, Western Australia, and I am participating in this WG as a member of NCSG.

Tatiana Tropina

My name is Tatiana Tropina, I am a Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law (IT law department). I am working on legal and regulatory frameworks in the field of cybersecurity and cybercrime, in particular, law enforcement access to data in transmission and stored data in criminal investigations. I'm participating in the ePDP as an alternate of the Noncommercial Stakeholders Group. I'm also a GNSO councillor at ICANN.

My background is in healthcare, but have worked most of my career in telemedicine and e-health solutions for healthcare providers and patients. I am currently consulting on hospital information system designs, mainly focused on mapping of information infrastructure as part of the design process.

I represented the NCSG on the GNSO Council between 2015 and 2017, and served on the ICANN Policy Staff team in 2017 supporting the GNSO, during which time I assisted in supporting the RDS PDP.

>> 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.
>> Sincerely,
>> Kurt
