ICANNWiki At NamesCon
In the first few days of 2014, our team decided to have a presence for ICANNWiki at the NamesCon domain conference in Las Vegas Jan 13-16. We'll have a booth there and look forward to introducing more people to our community-built wiki!

If you are attending, please stop by and say hi.
ICANNWiki Year In Review 2013
2013 has been a year of exciting events and rewarding work. Here's a look at what we accomplished and where ICANNWiki is heading:

JANUARY - Our team debuts the New gTLD Applicants table, an exciting article we had been working on for some time. This features includes a table of all 1,930 New gTLD applicants, sortable by Applicant, Registry Provider, Priority Number, and more


APRIL - ICANN 46  in Beijing was one of the most-attended ICANN meetings to date, and it marked the first conference that ICANNWiki came prepared with caricatures for everyone in the ICANNWiki database, which means that the thousands of caricatures sponsored by Verisign through the years are now available at all ICANN conferences.


SEPTEMBER - Andrew Merriam is wikiphile emeritus now at ICANNWiki. Jonah Geil-Neufeld joins the ICANNWiki team as its new full-time Project Coordinator -- a tall order -- but at 6'6", he is our tallest team member to date.


OCTOBER - As the first step into ICANNWiki's future goals of becoming a resource for ICANN attendees and industry personnel as well as the general public, the ICANNWiki.com homepage gets a makeover, making it more user-friendly.


NOVEMBER -  As we head to Argentina for ICANN 48, ICANNWiki sends out its first-ever community email newsletter. Jonah and Vivian practice their Spanish at the ICANNWiki booth in Buenos Aires.



Its been a great year for ICANNWIki. Here's a look into where our community-build resource stands:


Thousands of people stopped by ICANNWIki (Online and in person at ICANN meetings) in 2013 to learn more about ICANN and the surrounding community and industry.

Thanks for being a part of our community. We hope to see you this year in Las Vegas, Singapore, London, or Los Angeles. As you read, write and edit the ICANNWiki site, don't hesitate to contact us with questions or suggestions!

Let's make 2014 a tremendous year for the ICANN community. Cheers!
