The monthly magazine was first published in August 2007 in order to give the community a monthly update of what ICANN was working on and what had happened recently. At the time, it was very difficult to follow what the organization was actually doing unless you attended phone conferences and scoured the website for information.
A huge amount has changed in that time. There is now a monthly policy update, a compliance newsletter ; this blog – recently redesigned; the public comment page, Board minutes, dashboard stats, videos, a redesigned website, meeting websites, and so on.
Which leads to the question: What role does the magazine now serve?
So this is your chance to reform it for 2009. If you want more interviews, or more information on particular areas; if you want polls, or more community-created or provided information. If you want more humor, or possibly less humor. Or if you think the magazine is perfect the way it is, please let us know.
There is a survey below. It will only take you a few minutes to fill in – so please do and we’ll see you in the New Year with a fresh new magazine.
If you have trouble seeing the survey below, you can also view it at this webpage: http://icann.wufoo.com/forms/magazine-survey/.
