Phil Corwin Takes Job at Verisign

When the Internet Commerce Association announced that Phil Corwin was leaving the organization last week, I was unsure what he would be doing upon his departure. The ICA didn't announce Phil's career plans, and I figured we might hear from Phil via a LinkedIn update or something along those lines to learn why he left the ICA.

This afternoon, Phil announced that he will be working at Verisign, Inc. as its Policy Counsel. The news was announced via tweet:

A week ago, Phil Corwin from the Internet Commerce Association wrote an article on CircleID about the importance of this working group and the impact its findings and recommendations may have on domain owners and domain investors. Phil also published an informative blog post about the working group on the ICA's website. You should read both of these articles to get a better idea of why members of the domain investment community should consider participating on this working group.

Phil also commented to me about the importance in having solid representation among domain investors within this working group:
