    While in Ghana, ICANN is the remote participant.

    Do I get a prize for such wit?

    It won't be pretty to see the dismemberment of the at-large and the concept of public participation in ICANN, so ICANN is merely trying to protect our sensitive feelings.

    The reaction will not be televised.

    Improvement to Ellen's remote participation statis
    by BenEdelman on Sunday February 17 2002, @08:05PM (#4910)

    One quick note on Ellen's comments --

    It seems that Ellen has calculated the number of remote participation participants by finding the day of each series of ICANN meetings with maximum participation, and reporting the number of distinct non-anonymous participants who accessed the remote participation system on that day.

    For example, http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/icann/mdr2001/archive/ reports that 66 distinct individuals participated remotely on November 12, 2001, 93 on Nov 13, 53 on Nov 14, and 112 on Nov 15. (See the four links entitled "Remote Participant List" under the headings for the corresponding days. Note the count of signups at the bottom of each list.) Notice that 112 is the max of these four numbers, and it's also the number Ellen reported above. A quick perusal of the other recent meeting archives suggests that Ellen followed the same procedure for the other meetings she lists above.

    However, to the extent that some remote participants participate on one day but not others, Ellen's method is in error, and the true remote participation numbers are therefore higher. I haven't previously sat down to determine the number of total distinct non-anonymous remote participants per meeting, but that's certainly a statistic that can readiliy be calculated using the data publicly posted online. Alternatively, the links entitled "Remote Participants by Geographic Region" (within each Meeting Archive) provide related summary information. (See http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/icann/mdr2001/archive/remoteparticipants-geography.html , for example.)

    In short: There previously have been more remote participants than Ellen suggests -- and, I think, likely "substantially" more.

    Vint Cerf says the resolutions will be webcast

    In a note to the GA list, Vint Cerf says in total:
    the meeting will be webcast.

    I believe provision is being made for online questions during the meetings - ICANN staff will need to confirm.

    The agenda should be firmer by the beginning of next week.

    So was it much ado about nothing? We'll still have to wait. If it's ICANN staff minding the online questions, that's a recipe for disaster. Will also have to see if there's a realtime scribe and remote participant chat. Neither of those should break the budget, in their absence they could even be done by those without official ICANN accreditation via IRC. -g
