Over the past year, the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG), a community-based team of industry leaders supported by ICANN, has led the effort to prepare the online community for the next billion Internet users through a process known as Universal Acceptance (UA).
I am pleased to say we have now updated our Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Dashboard to "version two." In close partnership with the community, we've further evolved and updated some of the KPIs in the Dashboard. One example of this is the recently announced Beta gTLD Marketplace Health Index [PDF, 2.4 MB]. This update is a part of our commitment to reviewing and improving all aspects of the organization's operations and how it supports the community.
Very few people realize what it actually takes to make an ICANN meeting run smoothly from the Network Operations Center backroom, where the InfoTech team orchestrates its magic with high energy. You’ve probably experienced the excellent remote capabilities to encourage diverse participation, good wifi on site, and generally, things run smoothly so you can focus on the real issues and discussions at hand. And this is a good thing.
