    ICANN Meetings Bucharest ICANN meeting: Very remote participation reprised
    posted by michael on Monday June 24 2002, @10:55AM

    fnord writes "With the first day of ICANN meetings in Bucharest already well over by the time you read this, ICANN has finally seen fit to announce how one can participate remotely. This follows the pattern begun at its last meeting (there was considerable ICANNWatch coverage of that limited coverage, including but not limited to: 1, 2, 3) in Accra of announcing remote participation opportunities at the last minute, then providing less remote participation opportunities than had been the case throughout ICANN's history. This is fitting as it underscores both the ever-decreasing openness and transparency of ICANN (never much to begin with), as well as the clear message that if you can't afford the time and money to repeatedly jetset around the globe, then you can't possibly have anything to say that ICANN might want to hear. As the saying goes, if you have to ask how much ICANN participation costs, you can't afford it."

    Beginning with Accra, the previously available follow-along scribe's notes for remote participants disappeared, as did the accompanying IRC chat channel (which was also available via a Java web-based interface). For Accra, DNSO General Assembly Chair Thomas Roessler and Alt Chair Alexander Svensson did a commendable job of replacing the scribe and chat functionalities on their own initiative. I have seen no mention that they, or anyone, will do so this time. And why program anything, the only software ICANN needs has already been written.

    Should one wish to synchronize one's ICANN Watch so as to tune in live to the endlessly looping train-wreck that is ICANN, and watch mutely, one can get the local Bucharest time here, with a comparison to other time zones here. -g

    And Robert Shaw reports on a train wreck already, in which the GAC, quite belatedly in comparison to most other groups, runs headlong into ICANN's version of Just In Time. If you missed that collision (and most did), not to worry, there'll be another one along in 5 minutes. -g

    if you have to ask...

    Surely, "if you have to ask how to participate, they don't want to hear from you?"

    Bret Fausett's icann sub-blog, the bucharest.blog.us, has another take on remote participation. It's not a bug, it's a feature. And it seems the the U. of Oregon RealAudio feed will be audio and video, they were already streaming a picture when I checked the connection. -g

    Alexander has started to send summaries (one so far ;-) to the GA list. I'm archiving them separately here, and am also providing an RSS feed for any bloggers out there. See my blog for details. -tlr

    I signed up as a "remote attendee" but have received diddly-squat about how to participate or attend on the Web

    I am, like many, many others, totally fed up with ICANN's false claims to openness and transparency... Well, to be fair, they ARE transparent. Blatantly
