If any members are interested to learn how the Internet is governed (i.e. not by ‘governments’ like the old telephone system was in the ITU) then those of us in Joburg have a fortunate once in a lifetime (free) opportunity to attend the 59th global ICANN meeting.

    ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe to enable attendees from around the world to participate in person. One meeting each year is also the organization’s annual general meeting, during which new Board members take their seats.
    ICANN meetings are free and officially run five days (Monday to Friday). There are also a few pre-meeting workshops and working sessions when the volunteer members of our supporting organizations and advisory committees initiate their work.
    ICANN meetings offer the best opportunity for face-to-face discussions and airing of opinions among knowledgeable people dedicated to the continued stable and secure operation of the Internet.
    ICANN meetings offer a variety of sessions such as workshops, open forums, and working meetings on the development and implementation of Internet policies.
