Greetings Olivier --


I hope things are going well with you.  I am following up on the meeting
between our two groups in San Francisco, where both agreed to take steps
to aid in your desire to educate end users about use/care of domain
names.  I have the following points from my notes:


·         Desire on ALAC's part to have registrar channel help educate
end users on best utilization of a domain name.  Too many service
providers have varying policies; end-users don't know what to expect.

·         We discussed whether registrars can / should provide
information that ALAC could aggregate for general use and for
distribution in their outreach and education efforts

·         ICANN the organization is of little help---their website is
bad and doesn't show up on search.  It's an unknown entity for end-users.

·         ALAC is forming a group on developing more trust in the domain
name system, via education.  We committed to providing 3-4 ideas for
either our own consumer education effort or as our contributions to
ALAC's effort.

·         We asked ALAC to provide information about their purported
network of end users (up to 2 million) so we could have a better idea
about how to tailor potential messages.  They may or may not have
detailed information available.


My colleagues Statton Hammock (Network Solutions) and Michele Neylon
(Blacknight) have agreed to lead this effort from the RrSG.  They will
be in touch shortly about how to work with the ALAC on this project.


Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions.
