ICANN serves as the technical coordination body and is morphing into a consensus-based, member driven organization whose responsibility is the root DNS and naming system. Since ICANN was only founded in 1998 and because the Internet is a fast changing place, a lot of things change quickly. When compared to other similar groups, some participants feel that ICANN hastily makes decisions without appropriate comment. Others feel that ICANN takes too long to make some decisions as it attempts to reach consensus on its decisions.
A lot of stuff goes on here at ICANN that affects how the Internet works. ICANN works on naming and numbering generally speaking. Big topics include the introduction of new top level domains, DNSSEC deployments, and IDNs in the top level. This is the place where those standards and policy come together to shape the Internet.
Dyn Inc represents 60,000 domain name holders, over a dozen domain registries and millions of users who use third level names through its free dynamic DNS service. One goal that we have with our attendance is to provide them better information on what ICANN is doing. Transparency of ICANN is strongly discussed and we hope that we can do our part by presenting this content to our users.
