AMSTERDAM -- Daniel Karrenberg, Chief Scientist of the RIPE NCC, has been elected as the new Chair of the Internet Society's (ISOC's) Board of Trustees. Karrenberg was elected during ISOC's Annual General Meeting (AGM) which was held recently in Marrakesh, Morocco.

"The Internet Society has much to contribute to the continued success of the Internet," said Karrenberg. "The diligent work of my predecessors, the Trustees and the staff has put the society in a very sound position. Building on this foundation we will intensify our work in the areas of public policy and education. We will ensure that the IETF has the administrative support it needs to continue its exemplary standardisation work. We will continue to build a healthy network of chapters for local activities close to the Internet users. All this will help us to realise our motto 'The Internet is for Everyone'".

Karrenberg is a pioneer member of ISOC and has been actively involved with the development of many of the society's educational initiatives. He taught tutorials at early INET conferences, supported networking workshops and has written ISOC member briefings about Internet operations and coordination. In 2001 he was awarded the Jon Postel service award in recognition of two decades of extraordinary dedication to the development of networking in Europe and around the world. A regular IETF participant since 1992, Karrenberg has co-authored several RFCs.
