.ORG and Eco organize a workshop in Frankfurt
Last week, I was in Frankfurt along with a few of my team to participate in a jointly organized workshop, titled: “From Groundbreaking to Mainstream” with Eco Forum .
The workshop was a unique opportunity to bring together stakeholders representing different aspects of the .ORG community, from the organizations such as INHOPE.org and BUNDESREPUBLIK.org who manage their identity and advance their missions under the .ORG brand to SEDO who participates in and monitors changes in the secondary market to security experts such as Klaus Landefeld, an eco Board Member, and an European Commission Advisor such as Detlef Eckert.
The main theme of the event was the innovation that is inherent in the .ORG community and whether it would get adopted out to the broader community (think social networking, open source software development, wikis, green IT, etc) as well as innovative programs .ORG, The Public Interest Registry is working on to benefit the long term health of the Internet such as DNSSEC, and industry collaborations to combat phishing and malware.
The guests included a great mix representing all aspects of the Internet industry in Germany including registrars and resellers, ISP domain investors, as well as technical and security experts.
The feedback we received was the wish that we had made the sessions longer and perhaps filled out the full day! We look to continue doing these sorts of community debriefs, if you have a location (virtual or physical) and a topic in mind, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
