Did you miss any of our ICANN 41 coverage? If so, where were you last week?
Our VP, Business Operations/General Counsel Gray Chynoweth did his best CNBC impression, acting as our embedded reporter in Singapore, talking with all kinds of industry types and key decision makers about the biggest news of the event: new TLDs are coming.
Here’s the timeline of Gray’s time at ICANN 41 and all of his videos, done in conjunction with our friends at CircleID.
Before the announcement was made, Gray chatted about the possibility of new TLDs with Michele Neylon, the CEO of Ireland-based Blacknight Solutions, a company specializing in business class hosting and co-location.
He then caught up with Adrian Kinderis, CEO of AusRegistry, the company that operates the new registry database and name server system for the .au namespace.
Following the big announcement of new TLDs, Gray was joined by Jean-Cristophe Vignes, CEO of OpenRegistry, a company that focuses on applying for and running TLDs.
Gray also contributed a blog post that captured the mood of the day and what this means for all of us.
With new TLDs, there are obviously some legal ramifications, so Gray caught up with Mike Rodenbaugh of Rodenbaugh Law.
As ICANN 41 hit the mid-week point, Gray tracked down Phil Corwin, Counsel for the Internet Commerce Association.
As the conference wrapped up, Gray talked about some of the criticisms surrounding new TLDs with ICANN Director of Marketing and Outreach Scott Pinzon.
He then talked with ICANNWiki founder Ray King about ICANN trading cards, the wiki site and lots more.
Finally, he wrapped up with Alan Greenberg of Greenberg ICT Services.
Thanks to Gray for his efforts, our own Tab Julius for putting a finishing touch on the videos and CircleID for their help! See you at ICANN 42!
