RE: [Membership] Remote Participation in the Singapore Open Meeting
OK, but APRICOT is an Asian-Pacific event - how about the rest of us who can not afford to attend the ICANN meeting? Should it be held to take advantage of APRICOT? Just a lot of questions on my mind.
This really seems to bias the ICANN meeting to participants with money or from that part of the world. Sure that happens with all meetings, but I am not sure the rational of "taking advantage of another pair of events" is sufficient. As Bob Allisat has said in many ways, the political tone in Singapore might not be the right venue for a democratic event.

Not obscure, just very far away.
ICANN is taking advantage of another pair of events, see

I appreciate the attempt at a real video connection, but how did Singapore
get selected? Where are the majority of the people coming from? That part
of the world? It just seems like an obscure place for such a meeting.
