Upcoming Event: IGF Main Session: Managing Critical Internet Resources

IGP's Jeanette Hofmann will co-moderate an open discussion examining the internationalization of critical Internet resources management and other topics at the upcoming Internet Governance Forum in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt on Monday November 16 from 10:00-13:00 (local time, 8:00-11:00 UTC), remote participation options will be available.

The open discussion will not have panelists, in order to promote greater participation by all stakeholders to inform and provide their perspectives. It will be managed by the Chair and moderators with resource persons on call in the audience. The following issues were mentioned, among others, to be addressed under this heading:

    * Transition from IPv4 to IPv6;
    * The IANA contract and the role of governments;
    * The internationalization of critical Internet resources management;
    * The importance of new TLDs and IDNs for development;
    * Enhanced cooperation.

    Transition from IPv4 to IPv6;
    APNIC & RIPE should ALREADY be on IPv6 – Their /8s will be RE-Used starting 1/1/10
    The IANA contract and the role of governments;
    Like ICANN this is expected to fade from memory like the RFC Editor at USC/ISI
    The internationalization of critical Internet resources management
    All done and handled like the ACTA – Nothing for MM's groupies to do there
    The importance of new TLDs and IDNs for development;
    IDNs are everywhere and blocked by US consumers and TLDs totally automated – Nothing to do
    Enhanced cooperation
    Everyone sing Kum-Bah-Yah – 1,2,3 “Kum-Bah-Yah my Lord, Kum-Bah-Yah”
