  Of course investors count.  But customers always come first.  Without
customers in NSI's business, there is no company, and therefore no investors.
This is a point that many folks miss or don't really understand well...

  LOL!  Well there is.  I would suggest three easy steps.

1.) Remove the current ICANN (Initial?) Interim board.

2.) Conduct an online election of the current participants with a
      30 day pre announcement.

3.) Retroactively vote on any current "Edicts" / "Policies" that
     are currently in place by the ICANN Membership to determine
     if a majority consensus exists...
