    What's wrong with this picture? Verisign providing meeting space for the At Large Study Committee? Is this another grease job (like NSI providing chauffer service to ICANN Board and Staff) that guarantees Verisign's future success?

    Let me guess: Whatever ALSC decsions that could possibly benefit Verisign will undoubtedly go that way.

    Hello ... is this mike on?

    Those same buildings have been occupied in the past by:

    - Synoptics (which subsequently merged with Wellfleet to form Bay Networks and then was acquired by Nortel)

    - Cisco

    - Netscape

    representation and participation in ICANN. The ALC has issued two
    documents that will serve as a basis for our meeting: a "Discussion
    Paper #1," (included below) outlining the ALSC's initial thoughts and
    soliciting input, and an "option" template posted on our website
    http://www.atlargestudy.org/template.shtml ) for your use in commenting
    on and formulating specific ideas on "how" ICANN might involve "At-
    Large members." The meeting will feature a panel moderated by Dan
    Gillmor, Technology Columnist, San Jose Mercury News, to facilitate
    audience discussion, and will include all members of the ALSC.
    Additional information is available on our website at
    www.atlargestudy.org.

    meeting. If you are unable to be there in person, please send your

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    The At-Large Study Committee:

    Esther Dyson, Olivier Iteanu, Ching-Yi Liu, Thomas Niles, Oscar Robles,
    and Pindar Wong (Vice Chair).

    I'd feel better if ICANN spent some $$ renting a neutral space for the ALSC, rather than be beholden to Verisign for the free room. Instead of business-class airfare to Montevideo, and paying Board and Staff members up to $300,000.00/year (yes, that's three hundred thousand dollars), it probably would be better for ICANN to splurge a thousand dollars on a meeting room for the duration of the ALSC meeting(s).

    This whole process really blows. Esther Dyson is a huge enabler of the cancer that is ICANN. You can tell she grew up in a socialist environment ... not the US. Her ass is fat, she's dried up, and that's a fact.

    Esther Dyson? In my humble opinion, no party girl there. Just another bitter old bag that no one wants to fuck ... fancies herself the queen, with all her subjects waiting on her every word ...

    She grew up having it all, including all the dough. Likes to come off like a progressive, but really will take any side, as long as she's given a soapbox. Likes to take charge ... penis-envy, bigtime.

    Dyke? Who knows ... fits the profile.

    What happened to the $500,000 that ICANN gave the ALSC ?

    Has all that money been spent by Karl Bildt and Esther Dyson ?

    Note, almost no discussion went into that budget
    allocation to Karl Bildt. Apparently, Bildt was in line
    to be CEO of ICANN. When it became politically
    unacceptable for him to do that, the $500,000 was
    ponied up as severance money. Karl Bildt has likely
    squandered it, the same way he squandered the
    United Nations funds, while claiming to be solving
    the problems in the Balkins. While he played politics,
    people died. Good job Karl.

    Karl Bildt appears to be the master of making people
    believe he can solve their diplomatic problems, for
    a nice tidy fee. Fools rush in. Has anyone seen
    anything from Karl Bildt for the $500,000 ICANN
    allocated ?
