ICANN’s Culver City Regional Registrar Meeting Slides

ICANN held a very nice regional registrar event last week and I was privileged to attend. Their Registrar Liaison Manager, Mike Zupke came through with his promise to send us the slides from the meetings.

It was a good meeting, although there were periods of strong contention during the meeting.  Most attendees felt/feel that ICANN needs to be more forthcoming with information considering that we have clients investing millions of dollars on new TLDs. They started the meeting with a notice that they weren’t going to answer questions on new TLDs which was certainly top of mind for most attendees!  I appreciate ICANN’s attempts to reach out, but I certainly understand the impatience.

If you were unable to attend last week’s function, I hope you’ll enjoy and get some benefit from the documents that Mike sent out today.  I’ve listed them below and they include certain full session recordings and chat logs (as long as you can get the Adobe Connect to work well; I tested it on my computer and although it took a bit to start up, it worked well):
