The ICANN Board will meet anyhow, with or without public forum.
Your suggestion to eliminate the physical meetings (with limited, but still
important possibility of remote participation) will only lead to the
situation in which ICANN will meet behind closed doors.
By the way, has any proposal of this kind be made for any other physical
meeting like public congressional hearings? Should they also be banned until
we don't find a way to ensure remote participation at the same level than
I think that Prof. Froomkin proposal has some merit, and that we should
think a way to improve remote participation, but that going to the extreme
of refusing the "good" until we don't have the "better" is suicide.
