ICANN launches Wiki on board resolutions, demands comment

As part of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)‘s ongoing effort to build upon its strong record of accountability and transparency, has launched a searchable Wiki.

This, ICANN said would provide the public with easy-to-access information on every substantive resolution approved by the Board of Directors (BoD).

A Wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser.

ICANN officials informed that in order to get initial public feedback that could serve as the basis for further improvements before full implementation, the 2009 resolutions have been loaded on the Wiki.

Each resolution, according to officials, has a “work-in-progress” Wiki page that provides basic information, including when it was approved, what it’s about, the status of the resulting implementation actions, and links to additional information.

“Each Wiki page contains a comment box to allow individuals to share information about the resolution and its implementation,” a press statement made available to ITRealms Online revealed.

Interested individuals were also encouraged to use this Wiki and provide feedback to help build a more useful service, hence ICANN is soliciting comments to the public forum as from last weekend.
