[ga-full] ICANN At Large Membership Status Report (fwd)
Finally - ICANN@Large membership issues forth an announcement. The most
stricking part of this is that they are vetting 12,000 applications
"currently verifying applications for membership". It's obvious to me
that Jody A. Baram the ICANN At Large Membership Program Manager has
little election experience.
The cost of vetting 12,000 applications exceeds the benefit. 12,000
individuals are incredible numbers well worth any political organizations
survival. However I fear ICANN is on the well traveled road of the
GA. The level of trust in the directorship is completely missing and as
such they will end up pissing off the at large members. Watch and see.
