6 WGs have been identified:
""" ICANN originally allowed individuals to register and vote in
the elections of 2000, they then froze registration and refused to release
the existing membership roster. Instead, they abandoned the concept of
membership altogether, and next month, when the term of the current At Large
Directors elected in 2000 is up, they do not plan to replace them, neither
to hold any more direct elections, or allow membership of individuals in any
shape or form.
ICANNAtLarge.com has been set up by those of us who object to that plan. """
""" Develops and promotes the use of a "house style" (uniform fonts, icons, page format, document organization, etc) so that all site documentation presents a uniform look and feel; promotes the use of templates or other electronic aids to assist the organization's Members in preparing appropriately formatted HTML documents. """
How to start legal existence and be able to gather funds and pay for services.
To be or not to be (1) represented at ALOC, (2) as observer or advocate.
To extend Sotiris Sotiropoulos mandate of observer at ALOC.
To prepare documents for ICANN Executive Reform Committee.
10 Aug 2002: The name worldatlarge.org, which has been registered by Sotiris Sotiropulos, seems to get some significant support within the Panel and the whole group ICANNATLARGE.COM. This name have "atlarge" inside, but is different enough from confusing "at-large.org" which is felt as (mis)appropriation by another group to which the ICANNATLARGE.COM does not feel much sympathy.
""" We should avoid dispersing our own energies too much. Let's keep the mission close to something like, "promote user representation and participation in DNS management and Internet governance." """
""" What happens when there is a voting deadlock on the panel?
It goes like this - the vote is only done to confirm what is already known, so if you have a vote and there is a deadlock, essentially, the Chair is not doing their job - it's called a "hurry up vote". In the unlikely event that it does arise, that is a clear indication that the Resolution wording is inappropriate and needs further debate.
Do not mix polling with voting. Unofficial polls confirm the basis for an issue to go forward. Voting confirms the final result. Apples and oranges. """
