The Filter, No. 3.7 (fwd)

"I'm a techie", wenn das mal nicht eine Spur zu naiv ist:

 * Auberbach Eschews Tie, Wins ICANN Election: If Karl Auberbach had a
 campaign slogan in mind during his successful run for a seat on the
 Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' governing board, his
 remark at the recent Berkman Center/Internet Democracy Project candidates
 forum--"I'm not wearing a tie; I'm a techie"--certainly fit the bill.
 Auerbach, a Cisco Systems researcher with decades of technical experience
 under his belt (he is among the developers of what is now TCP/IP),
 advocates confining ICANN's activities strictly to technical
 functions--or, in Auerbach's words, to "handing out lots and lots of slots
 in the root zone and [letting] the operators of those slots run them as
 they please." 
 ***EXTRA: What's at stake in ICANN's decision-making? Join the Berkman
 Center for "Pressing Issues II: Understanding and Critiquing ICANN's
