Xplane.com has created some fantastic graphics that help to explain the structure and function of ICANN. Those of us who attend ICANN meetings and participate in it’s initiatives sometimes joke that we “run the Internet”. Nothing could be further from the truth but its fun to think that.
These graphics help to visualize how decisions about domain names are made and how the Internet is really governed. By the way, anyone can attend ICANN meetings and participate in the proceedings. The only costs are travel, sustenance, and accommodations. Enjoy the graphics. They are in the commons. Thanks Xplane!
