    IANA ICANN Staff and Structure
    Doug Barton Dons IANA Hat
    posted by michael on Wednesday November 12 2003, @06:39AM

    dmehus writes "ICANN announced recently that Doug Barton would be joining the ever-growing roster of employees at the Marina Del Rey, Calif., corporation as General Manager of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. It is a new position ICANN created, to oversee the IANA function and attempt to separate it from its regular job as the Internet peacekeeper (or meddler, depending on your point of view)."



    "According to the awkwardly worded release, Michelle Cotton will continue to act as administrator of the IANA and will report to Mr. Barton once she returns from maternity leave. ICANN's Technical Systems Administrator Steve Conte will do double duty (temporarily, of course) and handle Ms. Cotton's workload during her absence.

    One would imagine Mr. Barton has (or will be) already exchanged (exchanging) his Yahoo! cap for the IANA cap. In case you're keeping track, upon Mr. Barton's joining ICANN, ICANN will have 29 employees. It also has 5 positions still open."

    He's kind of a funny guy from what I've seen so far on the website. The SuperCoder 2000 mock keyboard photograph was uber funny. :)

    Congratulations on the appointment, Doug!

    Cheers,
    Doug
