    "ultimately, the Wild West must give way"

    "ultimately, the Wild West must give way to governance and control"

    >>VINT CERF: Vanda, I can hardly wait to see how this turns out.
    And we're about to find out.
    We are -- in fact have completed the work of this board.
    We've gone through all of the actions and they've been duly taken.
    So I will formally adjourn this meeting.
    But don't get up out of the room yet, because we need to convene the new board.
    So I'm going to ask that Ivan and Tricia please take their seats now in their new venue, and I would ask that Joichi Ito and Vanda please come take a seat up here on the stage.
    And what we will do, this is a kind of organizational meeting of the new board.
    And at the organizational meeting, it is our responsibility to elect officers and to populate the various committees that carry out the work of the board.
    I'm also going to ask Hagen Hultzsch to serve as chairman pro tem of the newly-seated board and ask that he carry out the process for election of the board chairman.
    So, Hagen, I turn this over to you.
    >>HAGEN HULTZSCH: Thank you, Vint.
    It is the mission of the board governance committee to recommend to the board the chairman of the board.
    And the motion here is that Vint Cerf should be elected as chairman of the board to serve at the pleasure of the board and in accordance with the bylaws of the corporation and shall hold such office until resignation, removal, or other disqualification from service or until his successor shall be elected and qualified.
    That is the motion.
    Is there a second?
    Veni seconds.
    So I ask you for your vote.
    Please raise your hand if you are in favor of that vote.
    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten -- 11.
    Congratulations, Vint.
    And I turn it over to you
    >>VINT CERF: Thank you very much, Hagen.
    I thank my fellow board members.
    I would point out to you that one of the reasons for disqualification for service is insanity.
    And it's conceivable that I have just fulfilled that qualification, having accepted this election again.
    My task as the chairman of the incoming board, then, is to also carry out the rest of the organizational actions.
    So we now want to put into nomination the position of vice-chairman.
    The board governance committee has recommended that Alejandro Pisanty be elected vice-chairman of the board.
    And the resolution reads that Alejandro Pisanty is elected as vice-chairman of the board to serve at the pleasure of the board and in accordance with the bylaws of the corporation, and shall hold office until his resignation, removal, or other disqualification from service or until his successor shall be elected and qualified.
    So I place this resolution on the table and I ask for a second.
    I see Hualin Qian raised his hand.
    If -- is there any discussion of this resolution?
    All those in favor, please raise your hand.
    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten -- 11 -- whoops.
    Let's do that one more time.
    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten -- 11.
    Thank you.
    That's unanimous.
