Personally am one of the lazy ones. I will go to such a website when 
tipped of something so I really benefit highly from the approach of 
receiving mails like the ones you send. Fortunately, they have been very 
well selected in relevance.

Vincent, Yassin,

Thanks for your kinds words. Really appreciate. Please let me know what 
you both think of fetching the information on a web site like the

As you will notice, my colleagues put more the activities that they 
participate in, in their regions. What could I put there that is of 
interest to you all?

I think there should be an award for Anne-Rachel Inne within Afrinic. She 
seems to be single handedly keeping us all informed and updated on issue. 
With some of us having a very tight working life, what would we have done 
without this super lady. Rachel I say thank you.

Each year, the Internet Society awards the Jonathan B. Postel Service 
Award.  The award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding 
contributions in service to the data communications community.  The award 
includes a presentation crystal and a prize of USD 20,000.  This year the 
award will be made during the 70th Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) 
meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 2-7 December 2007.  The 
deadline for nominations is 17 September 2007.

About the Award
The award was established by the Internet Society to recognize and 
commemorate the extraordinary stewardship exercised by Jonathan B. Postel 
over the course of a thirty year career in networking.  Between 1971 and 
1998, Jon managed, nurtured and transformed the RFC series of notes 
created by Steve Crocker in 1969.  He also served as the ARPANET "numbers 
Czar" and Internet Assigned Numbers Authority over the same period of 
time.  He was a founding member of the Internet Architecture (nee 
Activities) Board and the first individual member of the Internet Society, 
where he also served as a Trustee.  For more information on Jon Postel's 
life and contributions.

The Jonathan B. Postel Service Award is to honor an individual who has 
provided similar sustained and substantial technical contributions, 
service to the community, and leadership.  With respect to leadership, the 
committee places particular emphasis on candidates who have supported and 
enabled others in addition to their own specific actions.

Award Nomination Procedure
The nominee does not need to be a member of ISOC. However, the nominator
does need to be an ISOC member in good standing. Nominate via email to 
<postel2007 at isoc.org>, and include the following details:
    1. Name and Email address of nominee 
    2. CV/Bio of nominee
    3. Statement of recommendation including specific acts, works, 
contributions, and other criteria that would show the nominee to fit the
standard set by Jon Postel. It should be clear from your statement that
your nominee has performed in this manner over a long period of time, not 
simply that the nominee has done several significant things in the area of
data communications and the Internet. Please include corroborating
references with their name, email address, and telephone number. Conclude 
with your postal address, ISOC member number, and telephone number as well
as the postal address, telephone and fax number of the nominee.

Thank you in advance for your support,
