    Maybe ICANN needs to hire a full-time staffer to be the spelling checker.

    Here is a day's work schedule.

    Arrive 9:30am-ISH

    10:00am find one's desk and cruise the net
    11:00am leave for that early lunch date

    1:00pm return on the hour to look prompt
    1:30pm slip out the back for a quick shopping trip
    4:30pm return and slip quietly back in

    Start substantial discussion about a spelling error and correct it.


    5:00pm SHARP!! call it a day

    Read the 2003 Nomcom Report for a Good Laugh

    Read the 2003 Nomcom Report for a Good Laugh

    100 pages that clearly show that these people do not get it. Actually, it is about 10 pages repeated 10 different ways. It basically says that a bunch of self-appointed worthies have selected another collection of worthies and the criteria is that they are all worthies who collectively have decided that they somehow think they are representative of the infamous Internet community. These people are in need of serious psychological counseling. They are suffering from delusions. Firstly, they are certainly not representative of the Internet community. Secondly, they make no decisions that matter. Thirdly, they write a report to themselves (why would anyone else need it ?), to tell themselves they matter and are representative. It is amazing humans produce such nonsense. It is even more amazing a **group** of humans produce it. It is extra amazing that the group claims the people they select have to be intelligent. There appears to be some implication that the Nomcom members have already decided that they themselves are intelligent. They apparently offer the report as proof of their intelligence.

    Reading it is like reading a report on American Indians written by some PhD in Washington D.C. who has never met an Indian or spent a day on an Indian Reservation.

    The good news is that it shows how out of touch with reality the ICANN-ites are and fortunately the vast majority of Internet users are not impacted.
