Re: comments on addressing futures....
YAO (yet another organization) Seems the world is full of orgs and people wanting to create yet a new thing to solve the problem. Make it a new thing and we can fix the issues at hand. I've seen enough of the BS between ICANN and ARIN (and other RIR's) to know that if both sides would really sit down and be constructive we wouldn't need YAO.. Now that ICANN has a bunch of new management (ergo LT and MLS are gone) maybe the RIR's and ICANN should put their hurt feeling (yes one hurt badly bruised feeling) away and figure out how to work within the structure that exists today. Ergo the ASO and ICANN I personally am quite worried about the RIR"s creating a NRO (Is that Number Resource Org, or National Recon Org ??) I don't see the "broken part here". I don't see the masses screeming for the head(s) of the RIR on a platter, ala Verisign and wildcards. I don't see the community pointing the finger en mass to the RIR's and saying ITS BROKE, Someone should take it away from them. Heck, I don't even see the looneys out there really screaming that the RIR process is broken. Since it doesn't really seem broken, why are we trying to 'fix' it ?? It does seem to me that a select few people want more control (term empire building comes to mind) of the IP space and for various non-operational (show me broken operational things wrt RIRs) reasons want to kill ICANN. Killing ICANN in all seriousness isn't the right answer. Some months ago I finally gave up on them, figured it was a lost cause and that they should go the way of the dodo. Well that was a wrong thought. If we don't have them things will be worse. They DO have to stand up to Verisign on this Wildcard thing, but they can't do it in one day. Again, we the community should be helping ICANN get its act together. They are after all trying to hire some senior technical managment people. Certainly there are qualified people on this list to fill that slot. No, NRO is BAD, its bad like splitting the roots. Plain and simple as that.
