    ICANN Meetings ICANN Accra meeting webcast
    posted by michael on Tuesday March 12 2002, @03:15AM

    fnord writes "The ICANN meetings in Accra, Ghana are being webcast by the University of Oregon Videolab, in RealAudio (which is audio and video contrary to some reports). All you can do is click on the link provided and if the meeting is ongoing you will be connected to the stream. The free RealPlayer is available here. Ellen Rony gives a handy Accra to elsewhere time shift reference here. There is no mention of the streams being archived. BoD member Andy Müller-Maguhn has early notes on the GAC-BoD meeting here."

    The ICANN meetings were also going to be made available by Multicast but that ran into bandwidth trouble. Interestingly, the Cisco IPTV client for multicast was written by elected BoD member Karl Auerbach. Just another example of the quality of board member one gets from open elections through the wisdom of the electorate, in contrast to the unelected, self-appointed BoD members who have never written a line of code. No wonder ICANN is a self-admitted failure. That is unlikely to improve under Lynn's roadmap.

    Highlight of the meeting so far (though I only caught the Keywords presentation), John Klensin repeating what he has said elsewhere, approximately "making domain names visible to the end-user was a design error".

    Being overly inquisitive, I have found that the IRC chat channel set up by Berkman for MdR is still functioning. I hope they will leave it open for the duration of these meetings. -g

    And, if one needed even more contrast to be drawn between the real live organic internet and the increasingly slothful ICANN (even prior to having glacial governments to blame it on), by the time I returned to the Berkman IRC channel, GA alt chair Alexander Svensson was already there, and doing a most commendable job of scribing the meeting! I expect the log will show up somewhere.

    About an hour later Ben Edelman of the Berkman Center showed up and unceremoniously kicked us off. I guess Harvard can't afford to host a few transient bits. So we all went over to the Group W bench (you'd have to know Alice's Restaurant) where Alexander kept up his frenetic pace until the close of the meeting. Tune in tomorrow, if you're nimble. -g

    There is no mention on the ICANN or videolab webcast sites of archiving, scribing, etc., but according to an email I just received from ICANN Chair Vint Cerf, the webcast will be archived, as will apparently-not-realtime (since they are nowhere in evidence) scribe notes; both will be accessible by the public (this, despite a discouraging notation on http://videolab.uoregon.edu/events/ICANN/ that "The live stream will only be available while a meeting is in progress.")

    Cerf also advises that remote participants can submit questions and comments during the meetings, to accraquestions@icann.org, a notation of which now appears on http://www.icann.org/accra/webcast.htm, for purposes of the Public Forum only.

    That still leaves remote participants without realtime scribe, public comment page, and realtime chat. And of course, we don't know how many who might have otherwise participated remotely, dismissed the effort due to the impression that none of the above would be available at all.
