considering applying for new gTLD's. 
   
I am often interviewed and contribute in the local media about Internet and  
domain name issues affecting business. 

I represent  only myself and my companies and look to defend the interests of 
small business. 
There are no arrangements or agreements between myself  and any other group,

Commerce in Spain' and therein hold the position of "Communication Officer".

3. Mason Cole - Registrar Constituency  - Interim chair
====================================================

I am a Vice President of Oversee.net, responsible for corporate communications 
and industry relations.  In this capacity I am the primary representative for 
ICANN participation for Oversee and its operating companies.

Oversee maintains multiple registrar accreditations, each of which maintain 
registrar accreditation agreements with ICANN.

I currently serve as secretary of the Registrar Constituency.  

I am representing no other party with regard to my work with the OSC.  I am not 
an officer, director, consultant or employee of any other member of this 
constituency or any other ICANN constituency.

4. Steve Holsten - gTLD Registries Constituency
=============================================
2 February 2009

I am Director of Policy and Compliance for VeriSign, Inc.  VeriSign is the 
registry operator for the .com, .net and .name gTLDs and also provides backend 
registry services in support of Employ Media for the .jobs gTLD.  VeriSign is 
also the registry operator for two ccTLDs, .cc for the Cocos and Keelings 
Islands and .tv for Tuvalu.

As an employee who supports VeriSign's naming services business, I do often 
have access to Registry Sensitive information including information about 
registrars.  With regard to both our gTLD and ccTLD registration services 
businesses as well as other VeriSign businesses, our customers and business 
associates have interests in various ICANN policy issues and may be members of 
other GNSO constituencies and/or supporting organizations.

In addition to registry agreements with ICANN for .com and .net, VeriSign also 
has obligations to the U.S. Department of Commerce through a cooperative 
agreement that was initiated in 1993 and has been amended many times since 
then.  Those obligations include providing the A and J root servers as well as 
support to ICANN in implementing changes in the root zone file.  As such, 
VeriSign is a member of the DNS Root Server System Advisory Committee and also 
works closely with IANA staff in the processing of root zone changes.

In participating in the working group, I will act as a representative of 
VeriSign, but will also endeavor to solicit and represent the views of other 
stakeholders as appropriate, although I have no formal arrangement with any 
other stakeholders.  In that regard, I will endeavor to qualify any personal 
statements and will follow up with other constituencies to obtain their 
position.

I own shares of VeriSign stock and hold options to purchase additional shares, 
but the amount of shares I currently own plus the potential shares I could 
possibly own if I exercised all options is not material relative to the total 
number of VeriSign shares.
