    In the latter case the app was brought forward by you, so seeing as you're here, were you aware of the Esther connection? If so, why not mention it?
    If not, may I ask who brought it to your attention, or did you find it via a search, on AskJeeves for example, for, say: How do I meet up with ICANN at large people in real life?

    I was unaware of the "Esther connection" and I still don't see its importance. Perhaps you should subscribe to the atlarge discuss list. ICANN.Meetup.com has been mentioned there by Sotiris Sotiropoulos and Bruce Young.

    Didn't Esther once suggest giving you an atlarge job (no doubt only after the same exhaustive employee search ICANN used to find Kent Crispin), and BTW what ever happened with that?

    Nothing ever happened with that; I don't get paid by ICANN or Esther Dyson. (Actually, I don't get paid at all -- I'm studying.)

    If the atlarge has a problem with meeting in person, or a problem with verifying voters, then there may well be various solutions.

    If you read the ICANNwatch story I submitted, you will see that I didn't even talk about the atlarge having a problem with meeting in person. I said that it was a way of getting people together to talk about ICANN issues.

    You seem to be afflicted with the same willful blindness that gets in the way of fixing the elevator. Perhaps to you it feels like it's stuck on Up.

    I'm sorry that Esther's patronage appointment didn't work out for you, perhaps there will be more in the future.

    The GA is a way of getting people to talk about the issues, ohhh, unless it's about an ICANN rebid. Can that be discussed using MEETUP? If so, thanks for the solution.

    I should subscribe to which atlarge discuss list? I know I'm subscribed to one and if MEETUP was mentioned on there by whomever, there was still no full disclosure. At some point Esther injected her newest mistake into the datastream and trust got lost along the way. I'm sure you could care less but my Alexander trust quotient is falling with the elevator. -g
