A video update on the Applicant Guidebook and the overall new gTLD process has been posted.

The update features CEO Paul Twomey, COO Doug Brent and Senior Vice President Kurt Pritz talking through where the process for introducing new generic top-level domains currently rests, and what the path forward will be. It also provides a brief summary of the comments received in the first round of public comment on the Applicant Guidebook and gives some details of changes that will be made as a result of those comments.

The video can be viewed on the video webpage of ICANN's site, which can be found at: http://www.icann.org/video/.

It is also visible on the ICANN blog, where we welcome any comments the community may have: http://blog.icann.org/2009/02/video-update-to-the-applicant-guidebook-process/
