    Great job, it was time to add a new poll. You should not have included New.net as an option though. They'll NEVER get to run anything ICANN-approved. Maybe EFF should run .org instead.

    Somebody who has a track record of pitching non-profit public benefit organizations to government (UK National Lottery), has a fleet of planes at hand for ICANN World tours (Virgin) and could eat Touton and Lynn for breakfast while they choke on his title.

    Actually my vote should be and is for Non-Profit Registry but I voted for Jeff Williams. :)

    One more crook, kook or looney running a registry won't make much difference. If nothing else Jeff will run them nuts with his postings. :)

    I think that .org will go to a large company like IBM or Oracle. It is apparent that ICANN favours such companies.
