Karl Auerbach Posts Montevideo Diary

Topic: ICANN Meetings

Karl Auerbach, the elected At-Large Representative for Canada and the United States on the ICANN Board of Directors, has posted his Diary - September 10, 2001 for the Montevideo ICANN meeting.

On the one hand, the Auerbach diary project is a model of an elected representative communicating with a constituency. Indeed, it's more communication directed to us peons than we see from just about anyone on the ICANN Board. On the other hand, though, it could be characterized as a documentation of futility. The Board clearly doesn't want to hear this stuff, does it? And given the last-minute nature of most resolutions, there doesn't seem to be much time for outsiders, or even perhaps honorary insiders such as Director Auerbach, to do much in the way of changing minds....

The At Large Membership blew it by electing Karl Auerbach.
Who should the ALM have elected instead to wreck havoc? Perhaps there should have been a campaign to do a mass write-in ballot candidacy for Joe Sims, at least that might lead to a bit more accountability. -g

Basically, he wasn't even there, and could not communicate (during the meetings) by phone.
Were you there, even remotely? After the early glitches he mentions he was able to communicate. Have you understood his diary, even remotely? How is it he was able to vote on numerous resolutions if he couldn't communicate?
ALM is doomed.
Agreed, that is in spite of Karl, not because of him (except to the extent that it is being torpedoed to stop others of like mind from being elected). -g
