    Hmmmm...Shanghai...Well why not? Seems an appropriate place since so much has already been "Shanghai-ed".

    At least they did not wait until people were at the airport.

    I have had a private question regarding my statement that the GAC will now have non-government members and where that can be found. It is in reference to this [emphasis mine, I haven't bothered to reproduce the hyperlinks contained in the original]:
    6. Government Participation

    The Blueprint recommended that the GAC (a) appoint a non-voting liaison to the Board, (b) appoint one voting delegate to the Nominating Committee, and (c) appoint non-voting liaisons to each of the SO Councils and to the RSSAC, the TAC, and the SAC. (To this list we have added the ALAC.) These liaisons could be either members or non-members of the GAC, with sufficient expertise to participate effectively in each body. Each of these recommendations has been affirmed in the New Bylaws, and can respectively be found in Section 1 of Article VI (Board liaison), Section 2 of Article VII (Nominating Committee), and Section 2.1 (g) of Article XI (Advisory Committee liaisons).

    As GAC Chair Paul Twomey doesn't meet the criteria for GAC membership yet remains its Chair, and gets paid to do so by ICANN (that's our cybertax dollars at work boyz 'n' grrls), I call this the Twomey clause. -g

    Anybody wanna take a guess how much money Jones Day and Joe Sims are going to make off of doing the legal work to transform the ICANN turkey from V1 to V2?
