A fun part of the ICANN meeting is the ICANNWiki! ICANNWiki was founded by American Internet Entrepreneur Ray King as a grassroots project, involving community efforts to compile articles on people, companies, and organisations related to ICANN and the domain name industry.
In every ICANN meeting, ICANNWiki collects brief biographies of participants in their booth , furnished with a chair for interviews and a photo studio. The interview is brief, about 5 minutes if you are quick with your answers and they ask about your work, interests, societies and associations, hobbies, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles and other minor details! They then take a snapshot of you and in 12 hours you have the infamous ICANNWiki caricature. I don’t know what you think of mine but my nephew tells me it looks like a very famous cartoon. Here are some of the ICANNWiki Caricatures and profiles for DotConnectAfrica’s generation.africa team taken during ICANN 42 Dakar, all of whom were attending an ICANN meeting for the first time, hence having their first ICANNWiki date.
