    They just didn't want to hire them at the same time. Otherwise it might look suspicious. ICANN will wait about 6 months and DCrock will be working for them too. Watch!

    Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla, Bla. You are all just jealous that ICANN didn't hire you. Let's see if he actually does something wrong before we crucify him.

    Original Bylaws, Section 7 about CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER:

    The Chief Technical Officer shall advise the Board and the
    President on engineering and other technical issues related
    to the matters which they consider.


    The Technical Systems Manager is responsible to the CEO for
    the technical architecture and operational functions of
    the Corporation.

    Job activities include:
    - Provides overall management of technical functions and technical
    - Responsible for state-of-the-art computing and network environment.
    - Establishes overall architecture and operating environment, for
    both systems and networks.
    - Oversees analysis, design and implementation of software systems
    and applications to support staff and programs of the Corporation.
    - Oversees implementation and maintenance of secure operating environment.
    - Responsible for evaluation and appropriate application of new technologies.
    - Advises management on key technical issues.

    John Crain is the Manager of Technical Operations, Kent Crispin is the Manager of Technical Systems. Neither got 'Jon Postel's Job' of advising the Board.

    User #2810 Info
    ICANN is on a roll here. They now name Stephen Crocker chair of its newly formed Standing Committee on Security and Stability. What was surely another exhaustive search turns out to have been unnecessary. Steve is Dave Crocker's brother, for those beseeching ICANN for the latter. -g
