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 »

Method for Prioritizing Issues after Identification

Folks concerned with Internet Governance and ICANN oversight might recall that a ranked-choice voting method was used by ICANN in October 2000 to select five At-Large Board members. ICANN’s online global election was a Very Big Deal at the time. I was a front-row witness to those events, researching a Ph.D. dissertation on the DNS controversy, and sometimes participating in relevant working groups. I came away from ...more »

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 »

Leveraging multistakerholder forums to canvas ICANN issues

An experiment ICANN could institute is a programme that more actively and formally utilises multistakeholder governance forums with wider representation such as IGF, to consult on issues, that require more equitable multistakeholder participation to be resolved. This relationship could be formalised through setting of transparent agenda setting and consultation processes with clear lines of accountability on how the ...more »

WWW of Intentions, Stakeholders & Results

ICANN’s vision is: “one world, one Internet”. StratML's vision is highly complementary: "a world wide web of intentions, stakeholders, and results." Whereas IANA and DNS are about connecting computers, StratML is about enabling computers to connect *people* with shared values and common objectives. In crafting the new strategic plan for IANA, it would be good to explore prospects for leveraging the StratML standard. ...more »

Overview thoughts - and risks of jumping too fast to options!

The challenge – how to govern a global commons in ways that are effective and legitimate, and how to design a process to improve governance. We know that it’s … • unsustainable to have power in the hands of a self-appointed group; • illegitimate for the US to be in a uniquely powerful position; • undesirable to have something like the Internet run by states; • problematic to have excessive control in hands of a few ...more »
