The proposed Community Advisory Board for the .nyc TLD

From: Tom L.
Sent on: Monday, October 1, 2012 4:30 PM

Here's a wiki page on the Community Advisory Board (CAB) for the .nyc TLD that was mentioned in the updated Digital Roadmap issued by Rachel Stern's office several weeks back.

You'll note that I've suggested using a multistakeholder governance model in selecting CAB members. The multistakeholder model (government, business, and civil society) governs such Internet entities as IETF, ICANN, and IGF. It is quite different from the public-private (government, business) model favored by the current administration. To date, the city has applied the public-private model to .nyc's development, awarding a operating and marketing contract to NeuStar without any real public engagement.

But as the multistakeholder model supports civil society participation (that's us), I hope you'll take a close look at its role as described on the wiki page. And if you have a suggestion for a civic society member for the CAB - either a person or an organization - please pass it along to the undersigned.

Important decisions are yet to be made. The .nyc TLD is digital infrastructure and should be developed to "let all boats rise."
