    USA Goverment Relations ICANN Publishes First Quarter 2003 Propaganda Report to the U.S. DoC
    posted by michael on Monday April 14 2003, @11:10AM

    dmehus writes "ICANN published its first propaganda status report of its "accomplishments" to the U.S. Department of Commerce today. This is the first status report developed under the leadership and direction of Dr. Paul Twomey, the newly-installed President and C.E.O. of ICANN."

    "It's worth pointing out that while first quarter of 2003 was probably one of ICANN's most successful quarters since the so-called "reformation" began a year ago, none of the "accomplishments" were that substantive. The only real progress it has made is the completion of the .ORG transition to Public Interest Registry from the newly-renamed VeriSign COM NET Registry. The rest are relatively minor and inconsequential."

    Despite the fact that you see this as "propaganda" and the accomplishments of the last quarter "relatively minor and inconsequential," isn't the publication of this report a very good thing? Historically, ICANN's annual reports weren't this detailed, and now we're getting a great deal of information about ICANN's activities (public and behind the scenes) every three months. This is a big change from the past, and we ought to welcome both the additional information and the frequency of the reporting. I certainly do.

    ICANN's report refers to the 3-4 March ITU-T Workshop on Member States' Experiences with ccTLDs.

    ICANN's report states that "... discussion at the meeting reflected an overall view ...".

    The official report of the Workshop, available at:

        http://www.itu.int/itudoc/itu-t/workshop/cctld/cct ldrep.html

    states that "No attempts were made to reach consensus on contentious topics." and that "A range of opinions was expressed on these topics, covering a wide spectrum of views." (See 2 of Workshop report.)
