Only you seem to see that Peter. The Zone transfer issue is an
International one. As a society with the best interest of the Internet and
it's users at heart, I believe that we have a role to ensure responsible
management of the .nz. We are now seeking comment from or members on two
polices to which we have had some very good and positive responses. These
will go back to the technical committee when a final draft is put together
is it time to ask the question why a paid
director of DOMAINZ is managing the policy development process?
Because I stood up to be counted. My job on the technical committee is to
ensure that things progress. Now if you think that I am corrupted by some
desire to rule .nz then you are welcome to such an opinion. However do you
really think the Technical Committee of Andy Linton, Roger De Salis, Mark
Davies, Jim Shaw and Don Stokes would let me write or dictate policy which
was only in the interest of Domainz then you have got be incredibly naive.
The only reason there is not a major uproar, is this
time it only effects
small innovative companies in the registration business like us.
Or perhaps people see ISOCNZ trying to do something in a positive way and
actually welcome the chance to contribute in a positive manner. We have a
group of Technical people who have put together a proposal which they
believed was sound. However they understand that there might be other
issues which have not been considered and have gone out to the members and
the Network Operators to gather opinion and feedback. Sounds like a good
way too do things if you ask me Peter. Now if you do have concerns why
don' you express them in a rational way so they can at least be considered
in such light?
But mark my words, DOMAINZ will move onto something
that hits other
providers in the pocket. By then, it will probably be too late. They will
own dot nz, and if anybody challenges it, similar to Telecom, they will have
the money and the influence to make sure nobody else gets a look in.
This will never happen while I am a councilor or Board member, I can assure
