If you are involved in the internet, from e-mail to surfing to design, either as a Individual, or as a designer or developer, ICANN is the International Organization that will be developing the rules and regulations for some time to come.
Here are the current rules....
Later this year, five Directors of the Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will be selected by ICANN's At Large
Members in a worldwide online election. As the first step of the election
process, ICANN has chartered a Nominating
Committee to nominate a set of candidates for the consideration of the
At Large Members.
The ICANN Nominating
Committee actively seeks recommendations and/or expressions of interest
from members of the Internet community. To identify outstanding candidates,
the Committee depends upon input from Internet users worldwide. Communications
sent to the Nominating Committee will be kept confidential. To be most useful,
recommendations and expressions of interest should contain the information
in the Guidelines set forth below, and should be sent to <email@example.com>.
Recommendations and expressions of interest should be
sent no later than July 10, 2000. The Nominating Committee intends to complete
its work by the end of July, after which the election process will proceed
- a self-nomination phase, in which candidates
who were not nominated by the Nominating Committee can seek a place on the
ballot by attracting a minimum threshold of support from At Large Members
in her/his region (as defined by ICANN) via online petition;
- a campaign period; and
- the vote of the At Large Members.
Nomination by the Nominating Committee will thus be one
of two avenues for candidates to appear on the final ballot.
For more on the Nominating Committee, its members, and
the At Large election process, see the
Committee's homepage. To review the ICANN staff's proposed rules for the
