Hi Oliver,

Yes exactly, we already have ICANN Kobe on the list as well as other wider industry events in March. ICANN could be used to reach registrars, Cloudfest for example used to reach relying parties.

I just had a look at the slides from the session, I agree nothing too new going on there…

Dear Neal,

thanks for taking over this position - I know, it will be a lot of work.

If the launch is planned for Q1/2019, obviously the perfect date would be during ICANN 64 in Kobe.
Especially, if we could then get an official ICANN session with regards to „innovation“. I have been to the „Innovation in Top-Level Domains“ session on Thursday and it was (at least partly) ridiculous, what they wanted to sell as „innovation“.

Hi all,

Firstly I am very excited about the opportunity to work on the adoption topic with you all.

Well we now have ICANN 63 behind us and I have had so many conversations about ID4me with registries and registrars. The interest is very high, as is the awareness: In almost every conversation I had, the person I was talking to had heard of ID4me already in some context. So there we already have achieved significant awareness which is impressive.

We all know however that the key to adoption and success will of course be convincing end-users and web-shops/web-services (Relying parties) of the benefits of ID4me. This will therefore be where our Adoption WG’s focus is over the next months. Most pressing are various pitch decks/marketing material/communication pieces aimed at end-users and relying parties, so working on those over the next few weeks will be the priority.

We do have an official launch planned for the end of Q1 2019 which is exciting, but does not leave us too much time. I will send a doodle out for a telco-slot for early November so we can kick this effort off.

Best regards

Betreff: ICANN63 and ID4me Adoption Working Group Chair

Hello Adoption WG Members,

Since our Summit we had lots of feedback, requests from potential members, interested third parties
and the press - thus it has been a bit quiet.

I hope to see many of you at ICANN these days - ID4me will have a small booth in the main area together with DENIC.

To make sure we will get more speed and focus again on our Adoption Working Group, I am very glad that Neal Mc Pherson accepted
to take over the Adoption Working Group Chair, effective from now on.

If you are in Barcelona, please reach out to Neal and myself - would be great to see you there.

Have a great weekend!

Kind regards
