    Looks Like ICANN.ISOC Needs Another Task Force
    by Anonymous on Wednesday June 22 2005, @04:48AM (#15652)
    Looks Like ICANN.ISOC Needs Another Task Force

    If .UK Nominet adds another $10 to each domain name,
    and sends it in small bills to the ISOC in Geneva
    via a courier, some of the money will make it to
    Washington D.C. where some percentage will be used
    to organize a task force of face to face people
    in California. That task force can then start to
    organize civil society and look into this. First
    it will need to set aside some of the money to
    feed the .UN people in Africa.

    At $25,000 per day, Esther Dyson does not come
    cheap. She may be available to help organize the
    task force. Allocate $500,000 for her cut. That
    will get you a couple of days per month, not
    including the travel expense vouchers which
    will likely require an equal amount. What the
    heck, make it an even $1,000,000 for Esther.

    From there, you will need to fund Cerf and the
    rest of the ICANN Staff. Cerf will make sure the
    Crockers are funded and Klensin. ARIN has plenty
    of cash and they are dumping it into their big
    NANOG bash coming up in LA. Mixing the .UK
    dollars with the ARIN dollars should result in
    MORE money to spend. It is like a virus, money
    attracts money.

    The ISOC is busy using the .ORG money to fund
    the IETF insiders. Despite that, the ISOC should
    be able to hire some more Staff to manage your
    new Task Force. First, the .UK will have to
    come up with some money to pay the executive
    recruiters. Once Staff is in place, after an
    extensive world-wide search resulting in the
    same insiders being funded, that Staff can call
    for volunteers to do the real work. Staff will
    be busy sorting their digital picture galleries
    from their last trip to a meeting to organize
    the Task Force.

    What was the Task Force for ?
    Who cares ? Just add the $10 to each .UK name
    and then figure that out.
