In this second 2015 edition we are providing an article on the work that has been produced arround IANA Transition, a relevant issue for our community. We are also inaugurating a new section called “Dossier”. We are launching it by calling different registries in Central America and Mexico in which they comment on their current projects, landmarks and threats. To address the issue of the Internet in Central America we have interviewed César Díaz, who is responsible for External Affairs for LACNIC for that region. Another article is by Hugo Salgado, engineer at NIC.cl, who wrote an article about the strict planning that the working group engaged with the Latin American Observatory of the DNS is currently developing. We have produced an article that deals with the issue of the consumption of content in our region, the predominance of foreign platforms and social networks as well as the need for more domestically produced content. As with the previous issues, we have also developed a statistical report on the regional evolution of domain names.
