Question for the Candidates

1. The Root Scaling Study Team wrote: « Beyond the very near term, we can’t know in advance exactly how many TLDs can be added to the root, or how fast they can be added, because as soon as you start to add entries to the root each of the root system components adapts and changes in ways that cannot be predicted or effectively coordinated. That’s why it’s so important to build an “early warning system” that can (a) detect signs that one or more of the root system actors is reaching its limit for absorbing changes without major replanning, and (b) take effective mitigating action when those signs are detected.%%% « As an ICANN director, would you approve the launch of new gTLDs prior to having this « early warning system » built?%%% __I hope that parallel work will be possible. And to build such system and some other needed to follow the repercussion of this new introduction into the root.__%%% 2. The IGF process effectively uses « remote hubs » for participation. These hubs are the focal point of local discourse and workshops. While some remote hubs were established on an ad-hoc basis for the ICANN Nairobi meeting (in Bangladesh, Virginia & San Francisco), there has been no institutional support to encourage and develop a sustainable approach to further such efforts. As activities within ALAC’s remit include « Establishing an outreach strategy about ICANN issues in each RALO’s Region », will you, as a Board director, see to it that a program is established by the ALAC to support an ongoing regional « remote hub » outreach strategy?%%% __I agree that it is one possibility to enhance participation, outreach and inreach.__ __ICANN must show that by allowing specific budget and to open all their offices to allow members for the community nearby to participate.__%%% 3. The ICANN Board’s decision with respect to Vertical Integration has the potential to negatively impact the registrant community. Registrants « may be harmed by an integrated registry/registrar operation’s ability to identify high value domains, hold those domains off the market (either directly or through affiliates) and to then monetize them at a premium price. These practices render the domain name unavailable to the “first-come” registrant or force that registrant to pay a higher price than the standard retail offer. » What action will you take as a board director to monitor the domain name marketplace so as to ensure that registrants aren’t abused by domain name scalping?%%% __As for your question one.__
