    dmehus writes "The Internet Society today announced the new Board of Directors for Public Interest Registry, the non-profit registry operator for the .ORG generic Top-Level Domain. There was no mention on whether or not returning Director David Maher will be re-elected Chairman, but one would assume so.

    It looks to me like a well-rounded, globally representative Board, and perhaps, a model Board for the other domain name registries. There's a couple IP and communications law attornies; some technology and telecom experts; a privacy advocate; and people with management expertise."

    "Here is the new Board.
