    ICANN Meetings Welcome to the Club, Susan
    posted by michael on Tuesday October 28 2003, @06:07PM

    Susuan Crawford no longer can attend ICANN meetings in person now that she teaches law at Cardozo. So she has discovered the joys of second-class citizenship:
    It is frustrating to have these meetings scheduled in places and at times when, in order to attend, everyone has to drop their daily activities and hang around for almost a week. I have personally enjoyed very much going to these meetings, but now that I can't go I wish they were online instead of in-person.

    We'll get online ICANN meetings (reacll that the "I" stands for "Internet") just as soon as the people who attended get more interested in having meaningful participation from outside their small club.

    I.E. probably about never.

    Need for easier participation, but...

    While I would like to agree with you, I doubt that pure online meetings would be as nearly as productive as a group of people physically sitting in the same place and discussing.

    However, I am absolutely unsatisfied with the present "public forum" and online attendance mechanism; I think that ICANN should make an effort to make all open meetings webcast and remotely accessibile; and I am quite worried about the decreasing amount of public general discussion about important issues (which, practically, is the reason why the public forum ended even earlier than scheduled).

    Finally, I don't get your point about "places". These are global meetings and a place that is handy for you is very uncomfortable for me. If what you are suggesting is that ICANN meetings should all be hold in developed countries, or even in the U.S. only, then we couldn't disagree more.
