About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

IANA Stewardship Transition

In various discussions before and during the ICANN52 meeting in Singapore I have heard too many people mixing up improvement of current processes with what I think is the IANA Stewardship Transition Process.

If I exaggerate a bit (yeah, just a little bit)…I view things this way:

Regardless of whether you feel the current process is well functioning or crappy, the question on the table is what you feel must be done to not make it crappier.

Of course people can, and should try to make improvements now while we are reviewing many of the processes we have, but we should not because of these interests unnecessary delay or block the stewardship transition.
