    Where did find that item? I didn't see any mention of whois in the press release and from the composition of the panel I wouldn't expect much testimony on whois. Am I missing something?

    by the way, any idea who took over as Chair of the communications subcommittee that Senator Burns' chaired? At one time, Burns seemed interested in holding more hearings on ICANN, and I wonder whether the emphasis will shift now that there's been a change in leadership. -- Bret

    We're taking time for a considered reaction. It's not like they warned anyone they were about to do that. (Although how we can 'cover up' anything escapes me...)
