    As you've noted, Ben is not the most precise or complete of scribes. In this case, Lynn basically said to the Board "I assume I have your permission to finish off the comment period and publish my final paper on alternative roots as ICANN policy," and there was general mumbling and nodding in the affirmative. No one objected to this claim or suggested an alternative process. He was able to get to this point because he successfully spun his "draft" as mere restatement of existing policy and convinced everyone (again, probably too strong a word; merely didn't elicit any objections) that changing it would require following a bottom-up consensus-building process. It was a masterful stroke of politics, at once claiming his biased interpretation of history as noncontroversial (despite noting the previous day that all but one posting regarding his draft had been negative!) and at the same time positioning himself as truly supportive of a consensus process that would clearly take months or even years to reach agreement on a change. You had to be there to believe it. Sadly, I actually think he believes what he said.

    Policy or discussion draft?

    Judith Oppenheimer had an excellent question during Lynn's report ("Presentation of Discussion Draft on a Unique Authoritative Root for the DNS").

    (This was Judith's question but, I sent it in for her. There was a problem with the public comments submission form during the meeting. So, in the archives I am listed as the author.)

    Policy or discussion draft? The document cannot be both, but as Mr. Lynn has stated during his presentation that his posting reflects ICANN policy, I'd like to know the citation for that ICANN policy.

    This was an excellent question. Lynn referred to it as policy before it has even become policy! Could this be a foreshadowing of what to expect in Montevideo?

    Stuart Lynn started his comments by referring to a suggestion from Mike Roberts about how to prepare for an ICANN meeting. Mike apparently coached him to find something controversial. This obviously was not a joke and is intended to distract people, which it has. If people are not distracted, they might have more time to build new TLDs or deploy more networks or servers. Distracted people will end up with nothing, as ICANN votes itself huge expense accounts to travel the world.

    “For those who register to attend the meeting in person, a PSO Cocktail will be offered at the end of the meeting.


    Is this like the Kool-Aid Jim Jones served ?
