    Karl must have taken this picture early in the morning. There have been many more people than this in the room for most of the day. I'd estimate maybe 60 to 100 people?

    Of course there many more than that in attendance at the public forum and earlier in the week for the constituency, GA and Names Council meetings. There were probably 300-400 total attendees.

    Many people come to the meetings but leave before the actual board meeting. There's not a whole lot of reason to sit here and WATCH the board meeting -- you can just WATCH the video replay later. The rest of the week is participatory, interactive, bottom-up, etc.

    Does the Internet under ICANN regulation, like the satrapy that Xerxes envisioned for a conquered Greece, portend an absence of democratic representational voting and no protection from arbitrary and coercive government, but faux theocracy and censorship in every facet? Thucydides advises that if people can get away with things, they most surely will. -vox populi

    Re: ICANN is avoiding the US
    by Anonymous on Thursday October 31 2002, @07:02AM (#9897)
    See http://www.icann.org/meetings/, their last meeting in the US was Marina del Rey in November 2001. No meeting in US for 2002 (but 2 in Europe) and none scheduled for 2003- ICANN is clearly avoiding the US. The reasons may vary, but probably one is to avoid the heat it would face in the media and potentially by Congress. They need to think twice about this strategy if their MOU has only been extended for one year by Commerce. ICANN might consider hosting its December '03 meeting in the US.
