ICANN wants $61,000,000 of your money!

The proposed ICANN budget including the "roll out of hundreds of new operational TLD’s including IDN TLD’s"

http://icann.org/planning/ops-budget-framework-09.pdf

See page 20....they display the idn.idn rollout for 2009, 2010, 2011
Also of interest:
BUDGET: IDN Activities- for Fiscal Year 2008: $ 968,000... for Fiscal Year 2009: $ 2,111,000

BUDGET FOR gTLD
01 - IDN Activities 2008: $ 968,000 2009: $ 2,111,000
02 - New gTLD implementation 2008: $ 2,640,000 2009: $ 8,547,000
03 - Operational systems for new gTLDs 2008: $ 165,000 2009: $ 3,670,000
Grand Total 2008: 3,773,000 2009: 14,328,000 :o YOWZA!!


Some new characteristics of this year’s approach to planning include:
• Review of the operating plan activities and anticipated expenses at the same time (in the
past, done separately).
• A three-year budget model for ICANN, to better put fiscal year 2009 into perspective.
The three-year budget model points out the criticality of reaching community consensus
on many of the questions/assumptions still to be addressed for new gTLDs.
• A structured presentation of operating plan activities that both allows for summarization,
thus making it more accessible and tractable, while still providing adequate detail in areas
in which various community members have specific interest.

A key consideration in this time frame is preparing for new gTLDs and IDNs. Finishing the
implementation work related to new gTLD policy and staffing for application processing and
TLD operations is a major theme of this plan and budget, driving significant work effort and
expense.

Revenue is forecast to grow from about $52 million in fiscal year 2008 to $61 million in fiscal
year 2009. Revenue sources and growth are assumed to be much the same as was forecast for
fiscal year 2008. Expenses are forecast to grow to about $57 million over the fiscal year 2008
budget of about $42 million. The significant growth in operating expenses is driven by increases
in programs. Importantly, expenses related to start-up expenses for new TLDs and IDNs and
work to complete the new gTLD implementation account for about $10.5 million of this increase
and $14.3 million of the total budget. Expansion of programs such as compliance, security,
translation, and others account for the remainder of the increase, about $6 million.

The plan framework paints the picture of an ICANN of the future that has:
• rolled out hundreds of new operational TLD’s including IDN TLD’s;
• achieved significant progress on all of the strategic initiatives;
• and remained financially stable.
The three-year budget model provides a focal point for discussing and answering the many new
gTLD and IDN questions such as timing, fees, risks, and market demand that the community
should consider.


PRIORITIES REGARDING IDNS
Strategic Priority Three year deliverables
1. Implement IDNs and new gTLDs
a. Complete the policy process for IDN ccTLDs associated with the ISO 3166-1
two-letter codes (IDNC) domains within this plan period, and support the fast
track process with a goal to get first country code IDNCs in the root by late
2008/early 2009.

b. Implement the first of the new generic TLD strings in the root by late
2008/early 2009.

c. Ensure processes for approving and implementing new gTLDs (including
management of objections) are routine and run according to a published
process map with predictable time frames that are acceptable to the
community by 2010.

That is going to add up to a truly baffling number of new extensions.

WTF do they need so much money? To pump all these new extensions, of course.

Oh yeah, right, they don't promote extensions.

I'm with the Duck on this one.

They are going to rob speculators and people doing defensive TM registrations, making dot COM stronger than ever. No wonder Verisign is keeping quiet. Why screw up a free promotion like this one which is coming up?

Wondering if I apply now if I can get them to approve (dot lipps). I have a pretty good yard, almost as big as some of those islands in the oceans. And I know during the holidays I have more people in my house than some of those remote cctlds that are out there.

Any promotion for idn.idn is good for idn.com. Free publicity, why not?
