Please find below a call for membership in the At-Large Technology Taskforce
from the Chair, Dev Anand Teelucksingh.
One of the recommendations from the ALAC/At-Large Improvements Project
Milestone Report dated 9 October 2011
(https://community.icann.org/x/fAW5AQ) is the establishment of an At-Large
Technology Taskforce (TTF)
The TTF will be responsible for several tasks, including:
- periodically review the appropriateness of available technology,
- help train RALOs/ALSes in new technologies introduced and possibly operate
a help desk,
- introduce to the ALSes selected information-dissemination, communication
and collaboration tools and provide training,
- assist with the development and implementation of the At-Large Social
Media Outreach Strategy,
- assist ICANN staff with the redesign of the At-Large website.
Participation of the At-Large community and ALAC in policy discussions
involves the use of a diverse amount of tools and technologies over the
Internet. In turn, ALS representatives are expected to disseminate
information within their ALS and to the general public.
The At-Large community's understanding and effective usage of the various
technology tools is important.
A Technology Workspace has been created at
https://community.icann.org/x/JZvbAQ which the TTF will maintain to
help document the various technology tools and best practices and/or useful
add-ons that would help At-Large members better use these tools.
While the word "technology" in the working group name may imply that only
persons well versed in technology need only apply, THAT IS NOT
THE CASE. We're also seeking persons that are willing to evaluate various
tools and share feedback.
If you have any questions about the TTF and/or wish to join the TTF, please
email ICANN At-Large Staff at staff at atlarge.icann.org by Monday, 30 April.
The first call of the TTF will be held in early May 2012.
