It's an extraordinary thing. Three times a year 1000s of people fly to some
remote destination to get together, in the first non-multilateral global
governance process in history, to argue about how the Internet runs,
specifically addressing and routing, and the role of names in that. What
might at first seem a purely technical matter is fraught with commercial.
social, legal, and other concerns.  What is even more extraordinary is
that, when it comes to the NYC tech community, despite their almost
absolute dependence on these systems, there is a preponderance of ignorance
on the most elemental aspects of this policy process - one that could have
dramatic effects on their efforts & businesses. At ISOC-NY we do our best
to rectify that!

Chapter <http://isoc-ny.org/>* (ISOC-NY) present a recap of *ICANN 59
<https://meetings.icann.org/en/johannesburg59>* which took place in
Johannesburg at the end of June.

Some major issues under discussion were:

   - the future of the WHOIS system which identifies owners of websites
   - the robustness and reliability of Internet routing
   - access to the new TLDs
   - domain dispute process
   - law enforcement
   - Intellectual Property
   - human rights

This 'Read Out' will not only give insights on what went down in Jo'burg,
but also provide an opportunity for the NYC Internet community at-large to
make its views known.

ISOC-NY works strongly to raise awareness and bring as many voice as
possible to these processes. We would like to engage the NY tech and
startup community as they could and should benefit from learning about
these issues and taking on a greater interest. http://isoc-ny.org

ICANN’s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world. http://icann.org
