    ICANN Meetings Bucharest updates
    posted by tbyfield on Wednesday June 26 2002, @03:52AM

    Jamie Love has been sending useful notes on events in Bucharest to the Noncommercial Constituency's discussion list (ncdnhc-discuss); the relevant archive is here, and his updates start about here. [Updated with new links.]

    Alternative Chair of the General Assembly Alexander Svensson has challenged Love's assessment of the pseudo-At Large session. Setting aside the accuracy of Jamie's notes, my own very remote impression is that it's frustrating to see Svensson seemingly explaining Dyson who, in turn was explaining ICANN's board. This model, in which the possibilities and limitations issue forth from ICANN's supposed center, is precisely backwards for a "bottom-up" organization. Worse, it's counterproductive: the resulting debates about what this or that statement "really" meant substitute scholasticism for effective debate.

    But these remarks are a critique of ICANN's institutional neurosis, not of the individual efforts of Jamie or Alexander -- both of whom deserve much credit for taking the time to clarify what's going on.

    [Alexander Svensson notes that GA chair Thomas Roessler has provided remote scribing at http://log.does-not-exist.org.

    I don't understand what Ms. Dyson's role is in Bucharest. A lobbyist? An Activist? Or was she elected to something and representing the people that make up that something? I am not clear why her "voice" is influential to any formal outcome in Bucharest. Ms. Dyson does not represent me in Bucharest, does she? Did I miss something?
