ICANN Acronym Helper Application

A useful tool which can easily be implemented would be an App that would explain the Acronyms used by the ICANN community. At the moment there are three places where you can look ICANN acronyms up and these are: the Andalucia.com website, gnso.icann.org and icann.org. My suggestion would be to create an application available on both Android and IOS, that would put together the three previously mentioned databases. ...more »

Use virtual reality to enable face to face interactions online

Academics have been fooling around with this for years. Heck, our very own Bret Faucett set up an "ICANN Island" in Second Life almost 10 years ago. It wasn't good/stable enough back then. But maybe it's time to try again. Here's a cool product that might be a way to do that http://www.oculusvr.com/ But even a better version of Second Life would be a game changer for people who will never be able to afford to travel ...more »

Purchasing Platform

I have noticed that ICANN is not contracting by publishing any RFP any more. I understand from raising this in the BA meeting that ICANN is contracting a purchasing manager. Ms Beth Noveck commented that research indicated that traditional purchasing stifled inovation and there were 21 Century aproches to this. This is an area to explore.

Supercharged Outreach: Improve accessibility of ICANN issues

If ICANN is to become a broad-based multistakeholder organization, it must translate highly-technical issues for a variety of its stakeholders. In other words, ICANN needs a better strategy for making obtuse technical issues more accessible and actionable by the communities it wishes to engage. My suggestion is to supercharge the outreach arm of ICANN. The effort would need to a) Identify target communities. b) Reach ...more »

Campaign: ISSUE IDENTIFICATION

The myth of multistakeholder government

Although everybody talks about multistakeholde in ICANN, I have seen it only in the GNSO, and in the Council there is a disbalance between contractual and non contractual parties. The other SOs and ACs have no multistakeholder organization, neither the NRO or the regional registries. So, considering ICANN as a whole, multistakeholder participation is very limited and covers not a big part of it. If we are going to have ...more »
