Dear colkeagues abd friends,

It is good to read about what our Continent aspires to do and has done in these processes.
May I suggest that we follow some developments in the USA regarding current situation? The deadline of Sept 2015 might be a dream since it deoends on what the USGovt decides to do.
In that case, it is suggestible that we look at tangible things sych as the intensifying the effort being made to further develop Internet-based ecinomic activities....there is more to be done in that area while contributing in the current 'politics of the Internet' which are US based.  

Just a thought on this...

Kind regards

Thanks Barrack,

The trending thing in the next two ICANN meetings will still be the
IANA transition. Maybe we can have a theme centered around the role of
Africa in the process. Currently, three communities (names, numbers,
and protocol parameters) are working hard to ensure we meet the NTIA's
deadline. How has the continent contributed on the same?
