ICANN meeting in Nairobi running well, report attendees.
With all of the hype around security and possible disruptions, those in attendance at ICANN’s meeting in Nairobi say all is going well.
Attorney John Berryhill writes “The summit and the ICANN meeting are both running smoothly here. The “security issueâ€ is waaaay overblown by those who simply didn’t want the meeting held in Kenya. The conference center is huge and in a secure block with Kenyan military around the perimeter…”
Berryhill surmises that it’s probably safer than Philadelphia.
Berryhill sent this picture from the room of the conference center in Kenya. He said the buses enter a secure gate and then all guests go through a second perimeter. The conference center is huge, and there were no difficulties with the African leadership summit.
Reports on Twitter show that ICANN leadership is actually making progress on issues at this meeting, holding various groups accountable rather than letting them just delay progress.

Finally, a little humor for you. A celebrity guest interrupted the ICANN meeting today:
Notice the tattoo on Kayne West’s forearm.
Thanks John for keeping us all up to date.
