Sydney Gala photos up

by Kieren McCarthy on July 24, 2009

We have posted photos taken at the Sydney Gala last month. You should be able to see them in a slideshow below.

You can also see them and download them directly from Flickr by following this link. Click on the photo you want, click “All Sizes” and you are able to download it in a range of sizes.

There are also alot of other photos from Sydney. Go here to see all of them, split up by event. And please do add comments – particularly giving people’s names, as that will make the photos easier to find in future.

And of course there is the broader ICANN Flickr group that has lots of good photos stretching back in time. Enjoy.

Please note that these photos are published under a Creative Commons licence, more exactly an Attribution Non-Commercial licence. That means if you publish the photo anywhere you need to give credit to “ICANN”, and if you are a commercial organization you need to seek our permission first before publishing.

Incidentally, my personal favourite is probably where it looks as if Amadeu Abril i Abril has just thrown a huge right punch, missed, and his colleague is continuing on in conversation as if nothing happend.

Sorry this is off topic. But Mr. Beckstrom made his official public statement on the ICANN website on 7/21/09.

There needs to be opportunity for the internet audience to respond to Mr. Beckstrom’s comments and to articulate several related thoughts via comments. Can you post his letter here on the ICANN blog such that readers can respond with comments?

Thank you,

@ Max Menius: I’m not sure I follow your logic. Why should a message from the CEO be put up for public commentary? He wasn’t seeking debate in this case – as the style of the message makes clear. It was a message to the community from a personal perspective.

There are numerous other fora where people are discussing what was said in the message, so I’d point you to them if you want to raise issues with the community.

Awesome photos. It appears it was a great time to be had by all.

@Kieren – “Debate” is not the goal. A discussion of several of Mr. Beckstrom’s points is merely a dialogue. As CEO of ICANN, his “position” dictates future policy emphasis & direction. And his public comments obviously pertain to issues relevant to the internet community.

Yes, please steer us toward “numerous other fora where people are discussing what was said in the message”. I would like to participate in the discussion there, so please do list them. Thanks.
