Glossary Examples

These are examples of great Glossary articles on ICANNWiki.org:

  • cybersquatting - This is a brief article, but it does a good job of capturing the very basics of the Glossary articles. That is, it defines the term (twice actually, in two different ways),then relates the term to ICANN, and provides background and current ICANN related issues. It seems like a good foil that will eventually work in conjunction with the as-yet-unmade UDRP article. That is, much of the other related info will better fit on the UDRP page, but this page still is interesting and provides a good definition and background on a key-term.
  • DNSSEC - This is a great example of making a complex term accessible. The sections are all very short and build off one another nicely. While the discussion is fairly technical, the formatting decisions made here to break up the article help temper the technical information. Nearly every section has a reference. Also, take note of the ICANN section; this is an important angle to include whenever possible.
