    Plan? What plan?

    During my term on ICANN's board (which ended 11 months ago) I never once heard any mention of any long term or strategic plan.

    During the recent meetings at the ITU and UN I received the distinct impression that many of participants in those meetings considered ICANN to be a disposable and transitory entity that would be replaced or re-defined as the broader concepts of internet governance were formed.

    In those meetings there was a strong underlying note of creating small, highly focused structures to resolve clearly articulated problems rather than having a one-size-fits-all-and-does-all kind of thing such as ICANN.

    In other words, much of ICANN's fate is not in ICANN's hands.

    When on the ICANN Board, your time may have better
    spent writing a Strategic Plan, and making it part
    of the public record.

    At this point, the Registries and Registrars are
    funding ICANN. ICANN will grow as that funding

    Via Price-Fixing, and other Collusion, the ICANN
    community will keep their revenues at a level
    they need to serve their small community of
    insiders. They get the U.S. Government's
    Department of Commerce to endorse (rubber-stamp)
    their RICO actions.

    The revenues get laundered thru their non-profit
    network into their sleeper-cells. Via their
    terrorist network, they are able to control the .NET

    "Whereas, the Board is mindful that the GNSO currently has very limited support resources, and is facing a very heavy workload on issues including Whois, registry services, new TLDs, and the procedure for designating a successor operator for .net."

    With such a "heavy workload", how can there be
    time to make a Plan ?

    The 8 ICANN offices with a Staff of 50 at each
    office, should help to reduce the "workload".
