Task 1 and 2: Scott provided an update on recent activities. He and Ken met
with Marc Salvatierra on 9-10 July to discuss how to move forward to improve
the GNSO Website. Scott noted that the first step is to migrate the site from a
static state (content must be changed manually) to a dynamic state (content

to migrate the site although this will be transparent to users. They hope to
complete migration by the end of July. After the migration is complete, changes
to the look of the site will begin. Ken and Scott also are looking at the
website taxonomy. Content will be tagged for cataloging in the database in
August. In addition, Scott will conduct interviews of GNSO website users and is
soliciting names of volunteers who use the GNSO site and can articulate their
viewpoint on its strengths and weaknesses.

Task 4: Mason has been engaged in identifying problems, determining what is

recommendations Mason is developing, he also will consider codes of conduct for
ICANN blogs/public forums and better communications at meetings.
