Subject: Support for ISOC bid for .ORG Management


[ISOC received the below letter of support, which it presents to ICANN.]

From: Bruce Young
Subject: Support for ISOC bid for .ORG Management

I am writing you to support the Internet Society's (ISOC) bid to manage the ORG registry. Of the eleven bidders, this organization is clearly the most likely to commit itself to not only ensuring the effective technical and fiscal administration of this critical tasking, but also ensure that the ORG domain remains a destination on the Web where free speech is respected and upheld.

The ISOC has in the past, and continues to be, a regulating voice external of government or corporate interests that believes in and works towards an open, accessable Internet.  With a domain comprised primarily of non-profit advocacy groups, some of whose activities are often targeting government and corporate interests, the ISOC's independence and strong international voice is the best fit to ensure the ORG domain remains free of external influences that might otherwise be allowed to stifle conversations.

I am aware that other bidders in this process have influential voices calling for their selection, but I challenge you to ignore them and select the Internet Society to manage the ORG registry.

Sincerely yours,

Bruce Young
Portland, Oregon, USA
