Re: [council] Interim NC recommendations on ICANN evolution
After having read Sr. Pisanty's report, I am concerned that some of our recommendations do not provide the type of input the Committee is seeking. Specifically, the recommendations with regard to funding seem a bit general and unclear. I think it is incumbent upon us to clearly state a possible solution(s) to the funding crisis.
Another area where we need more clarification is with regard to the "Advisory Bodies." Who makes up these bodies and how will they operate? What is the relationship between these bodies and the Board? If we believe the Board should manage the policy making process, how specifically do we envision that being accomplished? Perhaps many of these questions are going to be fleshed out on Thursday. However, my take on Sr. Pistany's report is that, at least to date, his committee has not received enough specific proposals on how ICANN can and/or should evolve to solve the problems that Stuart identified in his original paper.
