I am willing to contribute to find a working solution to the question
sub 2. In my view an At Large Membership cannot find consensus through
'physical' meetings, as 99.99% or more of the members cannot attend
those. I would like to go for a fast and practical way to get in touch
with *all* At Large Members. This can only be achieved by coming to
some sort of 'deal' with the ICANN staff and/or board. A small group
could draft a proposal that is clever, i.e. workable and not begging
for immediate rejection by ICANN because of privacy issues. In the
face of possibly unfortunate results of the ALM study later in this
year, it is quite important perhaps to have some structure in place
before that. A mailing list on which 1000 people can agree to some
position might be useful e.g.
