    The DNSGA is the author of the ALSC story publishe
    by Anonymous on Friday August 17 2001, @05:50AM (#1894)
    Domain Name System General Assembly (DNSGA)

    The DNSGA is the author of the ALSC story published today.

    I want to make sure that appropriate credit is given to the DNSGA for this submission.

    The DNSGA submitted the below-mentioned story at 5:00 AM EST this morning using its valid IcannWatch User Login Nickname and Password.

    It is not correct that certain IcannWatch representatives did not publish the DNSGA's story or give the DNSGA credit for the story.

    Derek Conant
    DNSGA President and Chairman


    Recording Available of At-Large Study Committee Meeting Held at VeriSign

    A recording of the At-Large Study Committee (ALSC) outreach meeting held 13 August 2001, at VeriSign headquarters in Mountain View CA, is available for review. Apparently, Worldcom had some "technical difficulties" at the time of the live streaming audio webcast. ALSC Executive Director Denise Michel has provided instructions concerning reviewing the streaming audio at the following URL:


    DNSGA President and Chairman Derek Conant attended the ALSC outreach meeting and he set forth his position concerning the A, B, and C options and he disagreed with those options being considered by the ALSC as they were presented at the meeting.

    At the meeting, Conant proposed that the ALSC should consider qualifying organizations to represent the At-Large rather than attempting to invent an international democratic voting authentication process.

    Questions concerning ALSC funding and staffing were raised by the ALSC. There were also concerns raised during the meeting regarding authenticating votes and the vulnerability of online voting authentication systems and processes.

    Conant proposed that non-profit and for-profit organizations are better positioned to fund and represent the At-Large, so long as ICANN establishes policy and guidelines designed to qualify and regulate the organizations. Conant proposed that with organizations representing the At-Large, the applicant organizations and qualified organizations are able to provide the necessary funding, staffing and resources necessary to properly represent the At-Large. This will also prevent capture that is possible with the contemplated democratic process that counts votes when it is not clear where the votes are coming from or what the votes represent.

    Conant also checked Jonathan Weinberg for making irresponsible statements on the record during the meeting concerning the DNSGA and Conant's efforts in the ICANN processes.

    No I submitted the story published. Your submission is actually quite different.

    What Actually Happened
    by Anonymous on Friday August 17 2001, @06:56AM (#1902)
    We received multiple independent submissions of items regarding this event, as is sometimes the case. The way our system works, there is no one other than the editors who can read items in the unpublished queue, which is why when multiple submissions happen they must be independent unless the submitters are somehow tipped off by an editor.

    We don't publish everything we are sent, and exercise our editorial judgment as to which contributions to use on the 'front page', especially when there is more than one on the same topic. We don't exercise similar control over the comments which appear without our intermediation.

    Note also the ICANNWatch FAQ: Why didn't you post my brilliant submission?.
