    Minor Memos Bits

    Some quick notes: Joe Sims tells it like it is; Jon Weinberg puts family over Assembly; ZDWire finds a Freudian slip; Infoworld carries a gripe about some very tough marketing. Plus, the answer to our most frequently asked question.

    Joe Sims Doesn't Mince Words
    Anick Jesdanun of AP reports that when asked how ICANN would check up on VeriSign's promise to spend $200 million on research, development and related improvements, ICANN outside counsel Joe Sims "acknowledged that the organization has no way to ensure that the company spends the money or wouldn't have spent it anyway."

    Jonathan Weinberg Bows Out
    "With the humblest of apologies," Jonathan Weinberg has withdrawn from the "election" for ICANN GA chair. His statement is here.

    Karl Who?
    Under the headline "Your Freudian Slip Is Showing" ZDNet notes that,

    During a hearing last month before the House Judiciary Committee's Courts and Intellectual Property Subcommittee, Louis Touton, general counsel for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, was asked to name the group's board of directors. The U.S. government picked ICANN to manage the Internet's Domain Name System. In going through the 19 board members, Touton failed to list Karl Auerbach. Touton may secretly wish Auerbach was not a board member.

    Those Guys Are Mean, or Something
    In Infoworld, Ed Foster asks Is Network Solutions exploiting the rules or just aggressively marketing?, noting odd marketing ploys.

    The Answer to Our Most Frequently Asked Question
    Our most frequently asked question is either, "I logged in with my email, but it says there's already a user with that name" or "I forgot my password". Both have the same answer (in our FAQ):
