[council] Updated Statement of interest - add ref. to Interisle Consulting Group
I am an independent research consultant and a part time adjunct professor at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. I also have a recurring contract with the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) as a consultant to its secretariat and am an affiliate of the Interisle Consulting Group. I currently have no employment, contract, statement of work, financial interest, share ownership or any other business relationship with ICANN, registries or registrars except as a registrant of several domain names.
As part of my volunteer activities I give advice to various representatives of indigenous nomadic and semi-nomadic populations on Internet topics which include the possibility of obtaining an TLD. I am currently involved in activities that may lead to the creation of an non governmental organization (NGO) whose primary purpose would be to assist indigenous groups as well as populations from the less developed nations, NGOs active in representing the needs of these populations, and other advocacy groups, in obtaining a presence on the Internet. These activities may involve providing assistance in obtaining a TLD, including assistance in raising the necessary funding for a TLD, when that is an appropriate solution to their goals.
