Who is The Internet Infrastructure Coalition?

i2 LogoOn May 30th, 2014, Hostwinds proudly announced it’s membership in The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2).

Here is a message from i2Coalition C0-founder and Chair Christian Dawson where he discusses the accomplishments of the organization since 2013 and their vision moving forward into the future.

Hostwinds is very excited about future collaborations with this organization as we use our strengths, knowledge and experience to assist in propelling the i2 mission forward.

As the i2 web site states, “The Internet Infrastructure Coalition supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet, and we treat it like the noble profession that it is. We believe the continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation globally and domestically.”

Hostwinds is encouraged to know that as we work in concert with many other organizations within the coalition to strive for change, improvements and innovation, all those we touch in business and in service will be destined to benefit from this work. Our favorite quote from their web site states, “In short, we seek to foster growth within the Internet infrastructure industry by driving others to harness the Internet’s full potential.” This makes us feel great about our commitment, our membership and the overall potential of our future together.

An announcement of our membership has been published on the i2Coalition Blog which further states our belief and excitement by saying:

As Hostwinds began to study and appreciate the mission of the i2Coalition, it was only natural for our organization to bind our common threads of belief with theirs to help propel the collective best interests of an industry, its professionals and users to insure an accurate and educated voice is heard.”

Hostwinds is now prepared as a member of the i2Coalition to assist with some “key initiatives” which are built within the foundation of the organization:

–   Represent the interests of our industry on Capitol Hill and relevant regulatory agencies;

–   Educate legislators and other key legislative and regulatory stakeholders on the complexities and workings of the Internet;

–   Develop & share best business practices with fellow members;

–   Educate the media about the Industry; and

–   Promote the Industry’s messages to internal & external constituencies.

We invite you to visit the i2Coalition web site and learn more about the organization’s goals, plans and accomplishments.
