M+M is a Registry Services provider and Consulting firm for new TLD applicants. My role is to participate in ICANN policy creation, instruct clients on new TLD application requirements, and liaise with the technical staff on developing the registry software to meet the established requirements.

As the previous Liaison for CoCCA (Council of Country Code Administrators, a group of ccTLD operators that share resources and registry tools) I have nearly a decade of experience working with third world and post conflict ccTLD operators such as Afghanistan.

a. ICANN policy directly influences the way we will operate our business. Requirements on registries such as Escrow, PDDRP etc do matter. However, creating support for disadvantaged applicants does not have a commercial affect on M+M, therefore my participation in this particular working group is the most neutral it could possibly be in this phase of ICANN's policy development.

Anthony van Couvering - Individual

1. Current vocation, employer and position:

Current vocation: Waiting for Godot
Employer: Minds + Machines, LLC
Position: CEO

2. Type of work performed in #1 above:
Tiddlywinks and experimenting with different comic verse forms. For instance limericks:

The GAC denounced Public Morality
With a decisive instrumentality
Saying "Now you must fix
This Module Six,
And don't speak to us of reality!"

The difference between content and string
Is a devil to solve in Beijing
Or indeed Glasgow
For it's easy to see how
The choice is annoying to Konstantine

And clerihews:

Bertrand de La Chapelle
Is a hard man to quell
His new status gives him authority
To once again propose a category

Chuck Gomes is fair
That's why he's Chair
He said, "I don't want to cause vexation,
But I'll be out of touch on vacation."

3. Identify any financial ownership or senior management/leadership interest in registries, registrars or other firms that are interested parties in ICANN policy or any entity with which ICANN has a transaction, contract, or other arrangement.

4. Identify any type of commercial or non-commercial interest in ICANN GNSO policy development processes and outcomes.

-- I have an insatiable interest in working group proceedings and often listen to my comprehensive collection of MP3 recordings of teleconferences. I secretly make my own recordings and I hope to make money by selling pirated versions that include snippets from the beginnings and ends of calls that are not included in the official MP3s provided by ICANN.

Are you representing other parties?

-- There's a party? I represent that what are called parties at ICANN are nothing of the kind. All the real parties are elsewhere. I do not represent any of them.

Describe any arrangements/agreements between you and any other group, constituency or person(s) regarding your nomination/selection as a work team member.

-- The business constituency and I have an agreement that I will not join them, nor be selected by them for any ICANN work. I pay AT&T $150/month and my therapist $300/hr.

Describe any tangible or intangible benefit that you receive from participation in such processes.

-- So, so many. It has kept me off the street and prevented a possibly lucrative life of crime. I have a very good knowledge of hotels near the L.A. airport. I have been lectured on the importance of the global information society by ministers of communication of several autocratic states. I have over 1 million miles on American Airlines. I know now that trademarks exist to protect the consumer. I have learned that unlike any other technology, the cost of a domain name magically increases as a registry makes more of them. I can't say if these benefits are tangible or intangible. For example, if you are an academic or NGO and use your position to advance your ability to participate, this should be a part of the statement of interest, just as should employment by a contracted party, or a business relationship with a non- contracted party who has an interest in policy outcomes.

-- Sensu stricto, I am an NGO, unaffiliated with any government, although my company does provide taxes to the State of New York for the privilege of paying me to write SOIs. This has not advanced my interests in the least.
