Bradley and all,
I part I tend to agree with much of what you state here. I differ only that
I do believe most of the ICANN Board members are indeed ignorant where
the Internet is concerned, most especially the "Initial" ICANN Board members.
I also believe that most of the folks on this list and doing allot of the
yammering on the DNSO GA list especially the DNSO List Admin. are
relative rookies. Esther Dyson indicated this to me in a phone conversation
some time ago.
