ICANN Launches New Searchable Wiki
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has launched a searchable wiki with the goal of providing the public with easy-to-access info on every "substantive resolution" approved by the Board of Directors.
"Each resolution 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," the organization explains. "Each wiki page contains a comment box to allow individuals to share information about the resolution and its implementation."
ICANN is encouraging people to use the wiki and provide feedback in order to make it more useful. Any comments received will be put into an archive, and made publicly available.
ICANN says it will consider and incorporate public comments, as appropriate, in the build-out of the wiki. Currently, the 2009 resolutions are loaded on the wiki, as to generate public feedback that can get it started. Improvements will be made from there.
The wiki should make for a good venue for the public to contribute its input. Of course if the public doesn’t like the wiki, they can let that be known as well.
