> What do you hope to contribute to the ICANN Board?

ICANN is a technical organisation for technical problems, so it requires
persons which can pre-estimate the technical and political consequences of
any change. IMHO I'm able to do so. OTOH I'm sufficiently involved in
political developments (esp. digital signature, wiretrapping, general
privacy, education, liberation, ...) to transport ideas and reasonings
between politics, technicans, journalists and - last but not least - the
ordinary people.
