    What is ICANN Doing ?

    "Announcing the final passage of the organization's 2004-2005 budget, ICANN's vice president of business affairs Kurt Pritz told ComputerWire that expansion is still a priority, but much of the cash originally planned has been allocated elsewhere." ...
    Pritz said the organization is considering two African offices, two in Asia-Pacific (ICANN CEO Paul Twomey's native Australia seems a slam-dunk here) and two or three in Latin America, in addition to the two existing offices.

    ICANN opened its first international office in Brussels almost a year ago, and last December said it would have facilities "in all the regions of the world" within six months. Twomey already spends a lot of his time working in Australia.
