I was contacted last week by Don Hollander, General Manager of the Asia 
Pacific Top Level Domain Association, who is trying to improve the use 
of IDN TLDs in the real world, and looking for support.

See the attached PDF (from him) outlining what are the barriers to the 
effective use of IDN TLDs and who can help address these issues.

He's hoping to create a community of interested stakeholders. He expects 
this community to include ICANN, many ccTLDs, ISOC, and hopefully 
commercial developers. He is also looking to set up some opportunities 
to meet and discuss how to move things forward.

If you are interested in getting involved, please raise your voice.

Don says "There is a HUGE population with interest in this - but it is 
not really the current 2Billion, but the next 2 Billion - those who 
aren’t yet connected."
