    .org Call for Nominations to .ORG Advisory Council
    posted by michael on Friday January 03 2003, @06:34AM

    The Public Interest Registry (PIR) has issued a call for nominations to .ORG Advisory Council.

    According to the notice, the PIR will create a .ORG Advisory Council to focus solely on .ORG issues, to be made up of leadership from the broad spectrum of the noncommercial world. These issues may range from policy to the introduction of new services, and the Council will serve as an ombudsman-type resource for management as it seeks to incorporate the broadest possible input for important decisions.

    The .ORG Advisory Council will consist of twenty-one members representing a broad and geographically diverse spectrum of the non-commercial community. Interested individuals are encouraged to submit nominations, including self-nominations, for the Advisory Council. A nomination statement of approximately 400 words should include details of the nominee's experience with the non-commercial use of the Internet, commitment to promoting the non-commercial use of the Internet, technical understanding of the issues facing the .ORG registry, and recommended goals for the .ORG community.

    The members of the .ORG Advisory Council will be selected by the PIR Board of Directors in accordance with the Charter of the .ORG Advisory Council (PDF document) and announced on March 1, 2003. The statements of those individuals selected for the .ORG Advisory Council will be made available at the PIR website.

    Nominations must be submitted before February 1, 2003. Please contact nominations@publicinterestregistry.org.

    Just what prime names are you talking about? .org isn't like .info, in that it's an already-existing TLD which has been open for unrestricted registration for years now... if any "prime names" are still available it's because nobody chose to register them, or whoever did register them allowed them to expire. There's no sunrise or landrush phase coming up where somebody could grab all the good names. Are you suggesting that those people will somehow hijack good names away from their current registrants, or that they'll be first in line to register any good "drops" among expired domains, or what?
