    ICANN Staff and Structure Bret Fausett on ICANN Reform [according to Weinberg]
    posted by jon on Friday May 24 2002, @04:30AM

    ICANN Blogger Supreme Bret Fausett has posted his own proposal for a new ICANN structure. He suggests that ICANN was headed in more or less the right direction before release of the Lynn plan. ICANN's structure, therefore, should stay pretty much the way it is now, with the following exceptions:

    1. The Board should include six elected at-large directors;
    2. A new ccTLD supporting Organization should get three directors of its own;
    3. There should be an independent review mechanism . . . (more overleaf)

    4. All Board meetings, whether in-person or telephonic, should be webcast; and
    5. There should be an individual domain name registrants' constituency within the DNSO.

    Jon, thanks for the highlights list. I was meaning to do the same thing, but haven't had the time to do it yet. Glad you beat me to it. Here's another document, just posted: My Cost-Effective, Trustworthy Global Election.

    "3. There should be an independent review mechanism"

    Surely an Independent Review Commission was essential from the start of ICANN, so why has it not been put in place even three years later?!?

    Even if actual Law, there is nearly always an Appeal and Review process available - for an organisation that claims to make and maintain Civil Law, surely they must also be made to have this in place?
