Next week in Durban, South Africa, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is holding their next public meeting.
ICANN holds 3 public meetings a year where variety of sessions such as workshops, open forums, and working meetings on the development and implementation of Internet policies.
Our interest in attending ICANN is twofold:
1) PeopleBrowsr has three uncontested gTLDs dotCEO, dotKRED and dotBEST and as a gTLD applicant, we have a vested interest in the progress of the gTLD process.
2) We have developed an innovative set of social value added services called Social OS™ that can enhance the value of not only an applicant's gTLD investment, but also the value of the community around the gTLD.
Our Social OS™ Platform-as-a-Service will allow gTLD owners to instantly develop a social network around the gTLD, to include apps, analytics and deep social interactivity.
Importantly, having your own social network means that you own:
the App Store and the APIs
the Business Intelligence
PeopleBrowsr has been involved with social media for some time and we have collected over one trillion tweets over the last 5 years direct from Twitter.
We also run our own social influence platform Kred, we have deep experience in powering social networks, and SocialOS is already being used to power a major bank around their gTLD.
In addition, later this year we will be launching a sophisticated network for CEO's built around our dotCEO gTLD. You can read more about this at lc.tl/dotceo

Jodee and Andrew will be in Durban from Friday 12th July - Thursday 18th July and we look forward to meeting other gTLD applicants to see how we can socialize and monetize your new domain beyond simple branding and marketing initiatives.
