My statement of interest is as follows:
I am Director of Internet Strategy and Technology at the Swedish
Museum of Natural History (NRM), an agency of the Swedish government.
This is a full-time salaried position.
I serve in a similar capacity for the International Council of Museums
(ICOM) of which I am an individual member and NRM is an institutional
member. I receive a small additional honorarium for that activity.
I hold a non-remunerated position as the President and CEO of the
Museum Domain Management Association (MuseDoma), the Sponsoring
Organization for the .museum TLD.
NRM is the largest museum in Sweden and charged with advising private
and corporate entities in that country in matters relating to its
sphere of expertise. I am regularly involved in such action. Current
activity includes a joint initiative with NIC-SE, the operator of the
.se ccTLD, which is collaborating with NRM in a project in the context
of the Swedish national "Year of Cultural Diversity 2006". I also
advise NIC-SE in general matters relating to IDN.
I may from time to time receive separate honoraria for advisory
services provided as a result of my position at NRM, and may be
similarly compensated for writing and speaking engagements.
ICOM is an NGO maintaining formal relations with UNESCO and having
consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social
Council. I am directly involved in activity conducted by ICOM in its
relationship with UNESCO.
I represent MuseDoma in the gTLD Registry Constituency and am the
elected representative for the sTLDs on the GNSO Council.
I conduct no other activity with, and have no other interests of any
kind that involve, entities maintaining business or contractual
relationships with ICANN.
