I'm with CIRA (.CA ccTLD) as IT Director and I'm responsible/accountable for
the technical and SSR aspect of the registry and DNS. I've been with CIRA a
little over 15 months, with over 20 years experience in IT operations &
security. This is my first ICANN WG. I enjoy developing practical solutions
for difficult problems.
On the weekends, I enjoy my cottage in the 'middle of nowhere' with my family
Looking forward working with you!

Subject: [dssa] "introductions" thread
as promised a minute ago, here's a little post to kick off our
personal-introductions thread. there are a couple of goals here;
-- get to know each other a bit better. this is a very cross-functional group
so it is pretty unlikely that we all know each other.
-- find out what skills and interests we each bring. there is a lot of work to
do and this will help us get it done.
a few reminders. brief posts are good. clear language is good.
you can read my bio here -- http://www.haven2.com/index.php/bio -- here's the
"I'm a community organizer, entrepreneur and tech-geek turned business-leader
type person. I became moderately famous here in Minnesota (USA) as one of the
people who popularized the Internet back in the mid-90's. These days I divide
my pretty-retired time between being a domain-investor (I've still got about a
half-dozen great domain names to figure out), volunteering on a variety of
local and regional broadband policy bodies, participating in various working
groups at ICANN, restoring 420 acres of Wisconsin farmland to the state it was
in prior to agriculture (www.APrairieHaven.com), helping out at a variety of
local non-profits and learning the craft of furniture making"
so i'm a happily-retired geek.
my interest in DSSA is non-technical. i have been responsible for online
security in a variety of ways
-- i was the administrative CIO of the University of Minnesota
-- i helped develop a security strategy and program for a 50-campus university
system at "the other" university system in Minnesota, MnSCU.
-- i owned an ISP
-- i'm working on broadband security and stability issues at the state level
here in Minnesota
i'm pretty good at small to mid scale project management
i'm pretty good at negotiation and finding consensus views
i'm REALLY good at playing blues and rock n'roll keyboards. :-)
how about you?
