VIDEO: #ICANN, @dotnyc, and Multistakeholder Innovation – November 24 2014 @GaleMBP
On Monday November 24 2014 ICANN President and CEO Fadi Chehadé met with NYC community at the office of Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer. Present were representatives of ISOC-NY, Connecting .nyc, New York Tech Meetup, Meetup, NameSpace, Access, and Google. First there was a progress reort on the .nyc TLD from Jeff Merritt of the Mayor’s Office and Jeff Neuman of Neustar, followed by some Q&A – much of it about the mechanics of the nexus requirements for registrants. In the second part Fadi Chehadi spoke briefly about the major challenges to ICANN and the multistakeholder model, including the IANA transition and the development of the NetMundial initiative. Fadi had just returned from the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, where he had received assurances from that country’s leadership of their continuing engagement with the global Internet and its evolving governance processes. Video is below, including a couple of highlights. A full index is available on YouTube.
