ICANN has issued the following press release.
If you are an "Invited and pre-registered reporters" then you too can learn "how the Internet really works" and even have a "one-on-one interview (on the record)" with Stuart Lynn on Nov. 11, "the day before ICANN's November meetings begin (13th - 15th.)"
Special note to reporters: Whatever you do, don't ask what happens Nov. 12. [serious typo corrected- mf] That day - devoted to the constituencies and to a public forum, the only remaining parts of the agenda ICANN hasn't managed to totally control (other than one hour of open mike on the final day)- apparently doesn't exist.
