    Consistent with his independent status, the Ombudsman will have his own separate offices, as well as access to ICANN's offices in Marina del Rey, USA, and Brussels, Belgium.

    http://forum.icann.org/lists/ombudsman -rmaf/
        * From: Vancouver University - Worldwide University <vanu@xxxxxxxxx>
        * Date: Sun, 12 Dec 2004 20:48:24 -0800

    The Ombudsman is to be stationed in Vancouver BC, Canada.

    http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu&nbsp ; - with its consortium office
    likewise presently located in Vancouver - would be pleased to
    cooperate with the Ombudsman n any appropriate way.

    Our interest partly derives from the fact that our president,
    Dr Raymond Spencer Rodgers, specifically predicted and named
    the "electronic web" (and alternatively suggested the name
    "telesphere" in 1971 (long before Berners-Lee and others actually
    manufactured it).  The text of the 1971 108pp publication has since
    been on the web for a decade, at http://www.vcn.bc.ca/web-prophet

    We have also had decades of interest in on-line (starting with BBS)
    education, but failed to attract early funding donations in the context.
    http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu/histo ric.htm#vsol

    As a challenged institution (see the fifth text paragraph on our
    homepage http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu ) we are familiar
    with the sort of quandaries that an Ombudsman is appointed
    to address.   We suggest that the Ombudsman will likely also find
    useful the UIA publication referred to in the third text paragraph
    of http://www.VancouverUniversity.edu/worldu.php
