Re: [registrars] Teleconference & Stuff

Greetings all,

I may not be able to make the call, as I will be just arriving
in Korea for an AP regional conference.  However, I will be
in Cairo, and will be able to participate in the meetings there.

I have one request for an agenda item for the Cairo meeting,
that is to give a quick explanation to you all why I would like
Ken and Erica to request that the NC form a Working Group
to discuss implications for Internationalized Domain Names.
This is a big topic in the Asia Pacific region, and has consequences
for Registrars in that there may be  opportunities (and challenges)
for foreign language domain name registries and registrars.

I realize there are many perhaps more pressing agenda items,
but this shouldn't be taxing to the schedule, and would take
just a few minutes.

Bigger issues we need to tackle I think include how we can
organize ourselves into a more productive group.  We do great
when we are all in the same area (witness the NSI/ICANN contract
discussions) but need to harness that energy a little more often
I think :-)

Best regards,
