Joe Abley is Director of the DNS Group at ICANN. He also spends time chasing packets at TekSavvy, AS 5645, a right-minded and generally very excellent regional independent ISP in Canada.
In a previous life, Joe was Network Architect at Afilias, a DNS registry company. He was previously an engineer at ISC, responsible for ISC's network. Before joining ISC, he chased packets at MFN/AboveNet and various Internet companies in New Zealand.
Joe is involved in organising and presenting at operator meetings and workshops in the Asia Pacific and Africa, and is an active participant in the IETF. He holds a BA (Hons) in Physical and Computer Science, having narrowly avoided failure at the University of Cambridge whilst young and foolish.
Joe was one of the conspirators responsible for NANOG39.
