Hey, domainers, watch Frank Schilling tell you why ICANN is cool

I think this is the first time I’ve seen noted domainer Frank Schilling appearing in an ICANN-related video.

It was produced by Google during ICANN’s meeting in Prague a few months ago, and published on YouTube this week.

Alongside many familiar faces from the ICANN-policy-wonk side of the industry, you’ll also see Schilling, who is of course behind portfolio gTLD applicant Uniregistry, telling you:

What I like about ICANN is just that: it’s not controlled by anyone, yet it’s controlled by you. You control it just by contributing to the process. And it’s open to anyone in any language, anywhere in the world

I think the video pretty much nails it.

ICANN 45 starts in Toronto, Canada this weekend. You don’t need to be there to get involved.

    Wow, that’s a terrific summary of what’s good about ICANN. The spokespeople were chosen well.

    Meanwhile, I am forming my own little conspiracy theory here. Just checking: has anyone ever seen Quentin Tarantino and Frank Schilling in the same room at the same time?

    It would have made sense to have these people to express themselves in their own language: just 1 spoke French, the rest spoke English.
