My country of citizenship & of residence: France (Europe)
I am member of Isoc France a certified ALS and my involvement today in Icann
is to participate on behalf of Isoc France.

I have been deeply involved in the Internet world since 1994 with my SNCF
experience, where we launched www.sncf.com, today the first e-business web
site in France. We also developed a comprehensive programme to allow
employees to be connected and to use Internet technologies (TCP/IP, Domain
) such as Intranet, e-mail inside the company and with outside
companies and individuals

During the 2000–2003 period, I was Deputy General Manager of CIGREF (Club
Informatique des Grandes Entreprises Françaises) and I have represented
Cigref and business users in the Internet Governance field at all levels:
France, Europe and world-wide. In ICANN, Cigref has been a member of the
Business Constituency since the beginning.
I was in charge of organizing an annual meeting for about 100 CIOs from
different European countries and setting up a network for European CIOs.
I also participate, in a personal capacity, in ICANN to the New TLDs
Evaluation Process Planning Task Force and to the Assistance Group of the
Evaluation and Reform Committee for the formation of the ccNSO.
In France I represented Cigref at AFNIC.

I work actively in the organization by Isoc France with the help of Cigref,
Medef, and CCIP of European Global Event on domain Names and address systems
on Internet, know now as EGENI Europe held in Paris in June or July 2002 to
2006 with an audience of more than 250 participants..
In 2006 with Isoc Morocco we launch EGENI Africa.
This year meeting was held in Paris around the French elections with both
leaders of political French organizations and international organizations,
and around cooperation between France and Africa. 

My past and current involvements in not for profit organizations include the
1983 – 2006 – Board member of UCPA Paris, France;	http://www.ucpa.com
The National Union of Outdoors Sports Centers (UCPA – Union Nationale des
Centres Sportifs de Plein Air) is a union of organizations co-managed by
youth associations, sport federations including the National Olympic
Committee, and French Government (Ministries for Youth, Sports, Internal
I work on a voluntary basis, with responsibility for the Activities
Committee that oversees the organization of sport holidays.
2004 – today – Board member of FING Paris, France; 
2004 – today – Chairman of the Board of ISOC France; 
2002 – today – Chairman of the EGENI organization committee;
2002 – today – Member of the French IPv6 Task Force;

At professional level, I am founding CEO of BBS International Consulting,
since June 2004. We handle consultancy in the Information System arena with
a particular emphasize on Internet technologies.

Now that you know me better and you know some of my involvements, I would
like to tell you more about the some of the raisons why I am candidate for
1/ I think it is an important step that ALC become a real elected body with
the finalisation of 4 of the RALO - hopefully the 5th one will come soon.
2/ It is important that ALAC became able to elect board member(s) in the
future but I think it is also very important that At-Large members take
advantage of this very unique position of ALAC within the overall ICANN
organization. We are the only structure with no specific topic. We can have
a voice – and therefore give the voice of the individual users - on any
subjects’ link with the ICANN responsibilities.
3/ We need to work with other constituencies, supporting organisation and
advisory committee and of course with the other Ralos ;).  
4/ TLDs: it is important to know why we want and need new TLDs, what type of
TLDs (generic, sponsor, cultural, geographic (including cities)
), when
need to find the best balance between more competition and a still
understandable and usable domain names space.
(It is “strange” to have all the major gTLDs asking at the same time an
increase of the prices!).
5/ IDNs: A lot of discussion already but here also we need to find the best
balance between more language possibilities and a still understandable,
workable and usable domain names space.

I will stop now. Because it is already a too long message and I hope that we
will be able to discuss each of those topics – and other together.
