Re: [IFWP] Today's ICANN's Berlin Meeting (Wedesday)

Reading, even answering remote messages is not enough. There must be
a mechanism for online voting, and all representatives, whether of
constituencies, the SOs, or the board itself, must be elected by a
fully democratic process that includes all interested stakeholders,
whether present at the meetings or not. That is the only way to
prevent capture. It is still not too late to put such democratic
remote voting mechanisms into place. But it soon will be, and then
this whole process of creating the NewCo without direct universal
stakeholder suffrage will have been reduced to a grand capture by
vested interests.
