Dear Mr Beckstrom,
At the public forum in the Sydney ICANN Meeting, Kieren McCarthy
stated that questions could be asked via an online question box, and
that if time ran out to answer those questions during the public
forum, answers would be provided later.
Taking advantage of the remote participation opportunity, I asked the
following of the Chairman of the ICANN Board, Peter Dengate-Thrush:
"Peter, in 1999 in Santiago you spoke towards a Constituency for
Domain Registrants. 10 years on Registrants - who pay a significant
tax to ICANN - have no vote. Do you think it's time Registrants had a
hands-on role in ICANN?"
The reply form Peter was:
"Okay. I don't think we're going to be able to answer that in this
time frame. Next in line?"
I was hoping you might be able to let me know in what timeframe Peter
will be providing an answer to my question.
