Rafik Dammak
01:54:43
@michele I am pretty sure I didnt use the word wave or aimplied it :)
Michele Neylon
01:56:34
@Rafik well you don’t work in sales :)
Maxim Alzoba
02:01:03
<question> given the growing time to launch each new round (retrospectively from early 2000th), do you think that the next round seems to be the last round (this time it is about 10years gap) </question>
Maxim Alzoba
02:02:12
all panelists

02:02:54
@Thank you Maxim
Hadia Elminiawi
02:04:20
@Maxim the new gTLD PDP indicates that the timing of the following rounds need to be predictable and known
Maxim Alzoba
02:05:31
@Hadia, I know, just looking at the factual data
Hadia Elminiawi
02:06:28
@Maxim the market controls this - so where is the market going?
Maxim Alzoba
02:07:30
@Hadia, I do not think that the market controls the gtld round timing
Hadia Elminiawi
02:09:15
@Maxim the market should be the main driver here. In my opinion the question we need to answer is "where is the market going?"
Hadia Elminiawi
02:10:24
How do we expect the gTLD market to evolve? is another important question we need to think about
Timothy Roy
02:13:17
<question> Does anyone feel like the new GTLD's will have knock on effects to the cctlds</question>
thomas barrett
02:14:49
the new gtlds will continually siphon users away from both legacy gtlds and cctlds. its been slow but will continue.
Maxim Alzoba
02:15:18
issuing living permits to top officers to stay at office as home office
Maxim Alzoba
02:18:15
hosting, ISPs, registrars, cctlds/tlds seem to be an important part of national infrastructure now, given the remote nature of the current business life cycle
Munir Badr
02:19:01
I like the last point @Maxim - I totally agree
Maxim Alzoba
02:19:42
on the other hand - we see raise in internal tourism
thomas barrett
02:20:00
we're all AWS
Timothy Roy
02:20:02
With respect to the tourism industry, this is where virtual reality implemented by a tourism entity may help them to stay afloat on the international stage
Michele Neylon
02:20:31
doesn’t help the restaurants / hotels etc
Timothy Roy
02:21:03
currently or going forward
Michele Neylon
02:24:40
NB: quite a few ccTLDs are also offering backend services to gTLDs
Timothy Roy
02:26:17
In what way are they able to do this?
Seher Sagiroglu-ICANN Org
02:26:40
@Timothy is this question for Munir?
Timothy Roy
02:27:10
actually for Michele
Michele Neylon
02:27:18
What was the question?
Maxim Alzoba
02:27:21
it was a good panel, thanks all
Seher Sagiroglu-ICANN Org
02:27:43
@Michele , question is here: “In what way are they able to do this?”
Timothy Roy
02:27:45
In what way are cctlds offering backend services to gtlds?
Michele Neylon
02:28:08
they offer the backend registry service
Michele Neylon
02:28:12
CIRA has Fury
Michele Neylon
02:28:16
Nominet has theirs
Michele Neylon
02:28:26
Denic is doing data escrow
Michele Neylon
02:28:40
Afnic runs the backend for a bunch of TLDs
Michele Neylon
02:28:44
and so on
Timothy Roy
02:29:18
@Michele Thank you
Chokri Ben Romdhane
02:29:34
<question> do you think that a study about the evolvement of Gtld in our region is useful or findings already known ?</question>
Maxim Alzoba
02:31:01
the backend for Russian cctlds runs a backend for some TLDs and runs tld escrow
Aïcha Abbad
