Statements approved by the ALAC

      • Draft Final Report of the RSSAC2 Review 
        The ALAC is responsible for representing the interests of Internet end users within ICANN, and there are few parts of the Internet as critical as the Root Server System. The ALAC commented specifically on recommendations 1, 2 and 5 of the RSSAC2 Review, related to 1) RSSAC membership criteria, the 2) RSSAC charter and 3) engaging more effectively with ICANN.
      • Release for Registration one .COM Domain Name with a Single-Character Label: O.COM 
        Given the lack of both stability and competition concerns, the ALAC believes the introduction of represents no downside to end users. The ALAC further suggests that the proceeds of the auction be used to make concrete progress on universal acceptance, one of the primary frustrations of end users with regards to the introduction of new top level domains.
      • CCWG-Accountability WS2 Final Report
        The ALAC noted that the assurance of full consistency between all of the recommendations - which are noted in the report to be more than 100 - would depend primarily on the interpretation of the recommendations and the implementation plan. The ALAC recommends dedicating enough time to ensure inconsistencies do not result due to misinterpretation of the recommendations.

5. Social Media (SoMe) group (5 minutes)

"The Social Media Working Group is looking for your help. Issues of concern, content, platform, and language vary from RALO to RALO. It’s obvious that a top down SoMe strategy is unworkable and likely to be unsuccessful. We would like you as RALO leaders to go to your members, identify social media champions, and seek volunteers to form RALO level SoMe working groups. We will work with them to develop RALO-level strategies to build public engagement and presence. We hope to recruit 5-10 individuals with strong SoMe skills and online presence in each RALO.

When you’ve recruited/volunteered your team please provide a list to Evin and we’ll begin work assessing skills and developing workshops to meet their needs so that they can be an asset to your RALO and At large generally.

John Laprise
SoMeWG Chair"
