Dear Fahd,
Thank you for explaining your observations, unfortunately I do not have enough resources to make such observations.
But I have internet access to ICANN's and IANA's web pages;

-          http://www.iana.org/help/cctld-delegation: The U.S. Department of Commerce, as the Root Zone Administrator, is responsible for verifying that processing procedures have been followed, and authorising any related changes to the DNS root zone and root zone database.

-          http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements : US government is the contractor.
So no matter how many people from the community worked hard, the final word always belongs the US government. I meant this fact by the term 'fact'.

But, "all these years" were past and the Community is about to change these. Then, biggest applauses and many thanks go to these folks.
All the best

Hi Sezen,

Thank you for your email.

On the term of "Perception", I used it to mean "observation" :).

Nevertheless, removing my ICANN hat (which I have been wearing for almost 6 months now) and wearing my old community hat ( which I wore for around 5 years prior to joining ICANN), I can tell you that folks from our region have barely been part of the ICANN process. While attending ICANN meetings, you come across the same old faces from the region, and when participating in the proceedings of working groups, you will find the same usual names, too. A handful of folks from the region cannot initiate a change, but 10s or even 100s of active members can.

If we want to make this transition as satisfactory as possible, everyone has to play their role. One hand cannot clap, but two hands can.

Hope that helps.

Dear Fahd,
Thank you very much for your e-mail.
We all have to play our roles, that is undestandable.
But, after all these years' performance (evidences are many, we all know them), how can one refer to a "fact" as a "perception", sorry but that is not understandable at least to me.
Nevertheless, applauses go to NTIA for the announcement.
All the best,

(sorry for cross posting)

Friends and Colleagues,

As there has been lots of news circulated on the U.S. Transfer of Key Internet Stewardship to Global Community, the following is a one-stop email for what has been released so far:

·         NTIA Announcement -- http://www.ntia.doc.gov/press-release/2014/ntia-announces-intent-transition-key-internet-domain-name-functions

·         ICANN Announcement -- http://www.icann.org/en/news/announcements/announcement-14mar14-en.htm

·         Reaction of Internet Technical Leaders -- http://www.icann.org/en/news/announcements/announcement-2-14mar14-en.htm

·         Reaction of ICANN's BoD Chair (Video) -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCvtvVZyjLA&feature=youtu.be

·         Reaction of ICANN's President and CEO (Video) -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg_LD0C6ZiI&feature=youtu.be

·         FAQ Sheet on the Process -- http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/functions-transfer-faqs-14mar14-en.pdf

·         Public Consultation Process -- http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/functions-transfer-process-14mar14-en.pdf

As many have viewed ICANN and IANA to be US centric all these years, the time has come to change this perception by jumping on-board and engaging in the discussions. If we are to strengthen our regional  Internet Governance ecosystem and domain name industry, we have to all join the discussions.

Thank you,

Fahd Batayneh
