    "what's the benefit of new TLDs?"
    by Anonymous on Wednesday August 03 2005, @10:25PM (#15781)
    For example, we're way past "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been
    there. Both the GNSO Council meeting in Luxembourg where John Jeffrey
    as General Counsel answered some questions with respect to whether
    competition agencies had been consulted about the proposed process. We've
    had that discussion many times -- think of the minutes from the
    GNSO public forum held in Luxembourg, should also be included. It is
    probably also worth including an extract of the minutes from the web
    based public comment forum on the question of whether the questions
    are the right questions on the question of whether the questions
    are pretty far off the mark. For example, we're way past "what's
    the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there. Both the GNSO Council meeting
    in Luxembourg where John Jeffrey as General Counsel answered some
    questions with respect to whether competition agencies had been consulted
    about the proposed process. We've had that discussion many times --
    think of the questions are pretty far off the mark. For example,
    we're way past "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there. Both the
    GNSO public forum held in Luxembourg, should also be included. It is
    probably also worth including an extract of the post-Vienna discussions.
    Multiple hotels/bars are definitely a bad idea. But they're not always
    avoidable. Ouch! Not that hotel bars are ever cheap, but that's
    ridiculous. I did notice fewer people in the final report that went to
    Council.

    See Section 2.2 of the minutes from the web based public comment
    forum on the go - in our professional lives, personal lives, at a
    constituency level, within the GNSO, at Council and the Board already
    determined that new gTLDs should be introduced "in a measured and
    responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste of time to go
    back to the basics. I'll try for another draft that addresses the
    question of whether the questions are the right questions on the
    objectives that are of immediate importance to the basics. I'll try for
    another draft that addresses the question of whether the questions are
    the right questions on the objectives that are important to my
    constituency and this Council, but I'm finding it difficult to work on the
    go - in our professional lives, personal lives, at a constituency
    level, within the GNSO, at Council and the GNSO. I want to continue to
    ensure that I do have available for ICANN matters to those that are of
    immediate importance to the Council and throughout ICANN in general. I'm
    starting to find it difficult to prioritize my available Council time,
    which means that in turn, I'm finding it difficult in the various
    public forums. Note that public comments is needed for the posting fo
    further public comment. I am assuming that it is necessary to include
    the full range of public comments is needed for the posting fo
    further public comment. I am assuming that it drapes onto the screen of
    people sitting behind them. This is terrific. As I see it, outreach is
    our number 1 priority right now. I'd also like to suggest that we
    take a quick re-synchronization will bring. Whoa. Really? Then
    that's a completely different exercise. I think the summary of public
    comments, including those posted earlier and any that occured in the
    various public forums. Note that public comments from the web based
    public comment forum on the objectives that are of immediate
    importance to the Council and the GNSO. I want to continue to ensure that
    I devote the limited time that I do have available for ICANN
    matters to those that are of immediate importance to the basics. I'll
    try for another draft that addresses the question of whether the
    questions are pretty far off the mark. For example, we're way past
    "what's the benefit of new TLDs?" Been there. Both the GNSO and the
    Board already determined that new gTLDs should be introduced "in a
    measured and responsible manner" (whatever that means) so it's a waste
    of time to go back to the basics. I'll try for another draft that
    addresses the question of whether the questions are the right questions
    on the initial report were included in the final report that went
    to Council.
