    What is ICANN's "End Game" ???

    What is ICANN's "End Game" ???

    Re-Runs and Recycling of Insiders to the Board

    Mike Roberts is returning for another tour of duty.

    The .AERO TLD and all of the TLDs will now come up
    for RE-BID. Just think, people get to do it all over
    again, with .US in the mix this time.

    Now that .AERO, .MUSEUM and .COOP have proved to
    be such success** stories, it makes sense to
    repeat those.

    ** success - provide zero competition to ICANN's
    funders Verisign (.COM .NET) and the ISOC (.ORG).

    "an extensive and highly visible history" ????
    by Anonymous on Tuesday May 09 2006, @10:03AM (#16766)
    Marilyn Cade has an extensive and highly visible history with ICANN and is
    committed to its success. She has demonstrated her commitment to ICANN through
    her participation in numerous aspects of the organization's work. Notably, her
    contribution to the work of the GNSO Council has been persistent and thorough.

    Ms. Cade has made known her belief in the importance of involving the broader
    ICANN community in policy work and planning, and regularly translates that
    belief into action. Her contribution to the development of ICANN's strategic
    plan ensured that several mechanisms for input from the community were
    developed and implemented. These included a working session in Washington, DC,
    which was organized by Ms Cade and the ICANN Staff, and follow-up sessions at
    subsequent ICANN meetings.

    Ms. Cade has a thorough and well-demonstrated understanding of ICANN's mission
    and the potential impact of ICANN decisions on the global Internet community.
    She continues to be committed to the success of ICANN, and has solid working
    and experiential knowledge of the operation of gTLD registries and registrars;
    ccTLD registries; IP address registries; Internet technical standards and
    protocols; with policy-development procedures, legal traditions, and the public
    interest. Her work in organizing the cross constituency meetings that occur at
    each ICANN meeting is well-known and appreciated.

    Need To Know More
    by Anonymous on Tuesday May 09 2006, @04:46PM (#16768)
    I could support Cade, but first I need to know how she would vote as a Board member.

    For example, how would she vote on IOD's application for .WEB?
