    One wonders where this leaves the ASO's recently elected ICANN BoD member Mouhamet Diop, elected to replace Robert Blokzijl. This link provides links to the two earlier joint RIR statements on ICANN Evolution and Reform as well as on the election, strangely described there as to fill the ASO position on the ICANN Board that will be vacated by Robert Blokzijl after the ICANN meeting scheduled for October 2002, which implies that the oft-recused yet concurrently talkative Blokzijl was resigning, retiring, or not running again, which wasn't the case.

    Meanwhile the DNSO carries on with its election for the ICANN BoD position now held by Alejandro Pisanty, who is running again, despite the BoD being silent when asked by the DNSO secretariat whether the election should proceed as the current Evolution and Reform process, chaired by the same Dr. Pisanty, would make such a position obsolete. Perhaps the good Doctor would have more competition if it was clear whether the position would even exist, but that's just the way things are done in ICANNLand.

    To show his understanding of the democratic process I was going to point to a choice quote of Dr. Pisanty's at the Accra meeting where, in response to the Carter Center's (and ICANN At Large Study Committee Vice-Chair) Chuck Costello's comment that ICANN's Evolution and Reform was a palace coup d'etat, Dr. Pisanty hinted darkly that the Carter Center's observation of various elections had been less than impartial (a claim I've never heard before or since from anyone else), but alas, the video archive for Accra doesn't seem to be presently available, such black holes in the landscape also common in the open and transparent ICANNLand. -g
