    It is almost party time at the ICANN office.

    "It is almost party time at the ICANN office."

    With a total of 8 offices, spread around the world, a free buffet lunch could be served up every 3 hours, 24-by-7, at some location.

    No matter what time-zone the Taliban Society is traveling in, they would be close to the next party at the ICANN Club in the region. .PRO would of course be supplying the babes.

    Registrars, with their ICANN Gold Cards, could walk in and join the fun, they are paying for. It would be FREE for walk-ins and of course for the hard-working "Staff".

    Each Office Should Have Plasma Panels With $$$$

    Each Office Should Have Plasma Panels With $$$$

    Each of the 8 offices should have 4 or 5 large, expensive Plasma Panels when you enter. Those could display the current domain name counts and the $$$ flowing into the RIR coffers.

    Some faked up displays of Internet traffic to/from the Golden Root Servers would also be an attraction.

    Kiosks could be in the lobby for visitors to buy domain names, or buy a lottery ticket on an expired name (in hopes of selling it back to the poor slob that lost it). Options and Futures Contracts on new TLDs could also be sold. What do you think those Puts are worth on the .WEB TLD ?

    Vint could then keep telling everyone how he uses ICANN to manipulate the price of stocks on Wall Street, for insider trading.
