Cool new gTLD NEWS following ICANN meeting

The latest GAC communiqué was published and seems more interesting to read - in terms of new gTLDs NEWS - than the latest Adopted Board Resolutions from the Regular Meeting of the ICANN Board which offers more "Thank you to" than resolutions

When I have a look at these documents, I often wonder if ICANN knows that real interested parties (from the real world) then need to decrypt these documents. I wish there was an understandable report for end users and a report for insiders where they could auto congratulate each other without polluting the interesting information. Find all links to these contents in tonight's newsletter.
