Please remember to submit your Statement of Interest as soon as
possible, including the 4 points below. If you have already submitted
a note, please ensure that 1-4 below are covered.
Glen will publish a list of those individuals who have not submitted
their SoI’s in a short while.
One of the reasons Statements of Interest are important to be (a)
filed, and (b) include financial and especially IDN interests is to
later avoid “fox guarding the henhouse” situations, where
policy-makers do not disclose their interests while making policy, and
later go on to utilize such policy that might have been beneficial to
their hitherto unstated interests.
As a result, I exhort you to submit your Statements of Interest, that
cover at least the following key areas:
1. Current vocation, employer and position
In addition, I am editing a regular review of the Cambodian language
press - in English.
Policy advice, public advocacy for the introduction and promotion of
this Open Source software, in close coordination with the government
agency in charge: National Information Technology Development Authority
2. Type of work performed in 1 above
No involvement - but the Open Institute - as a not-for-profit NGO, is
strongly committed to promote the national language on computers - which
may lead to later active involvement with IDN in Cambodia
3. Financial ownership or management leadership of registries,
registrars or other firms that are interested parties in IDNs.
None - see above.
4. Type of commercial interest in IDNs.
If you have already submitted a Statement of Interest, please review
it to ensure you have covered items 1-4 above.
