the icann-atlarge@yahoogroups.com list started operating as part of the
WG-Review. The http://icann-atlarge.org site is possibly underway.

The http://icann-fra.org presents a position regarding the study and further
on by france@large.

Sites http://country.large are foreseen to help the @large movement (the
large TLD is under way: it should help people knowing about augmented
root). For the time being the temporary Upper Level Domain ".large.tp" is
OK for sites at http://country.large.tp.

The http://icann-atlarge.org site will support the ML and the sites.
The idea is to support Andy's demand of one @large team/site per
country and to take advantage from the French france@large experience.

The http://country.large addressses will be maintained available to a
small kernel of local people accepting to maintain it on a non partisan
basis to inform on *everyone* in their country and to serve their national
@large community rather than to defend their own opinons.

- managing a local ML
- listing all the @large sites, initiatives, etc...
- dialoging with the local NIC to better help
- informing people, press, etc.. about the practical matters

To help that effort we have started the world@wide foundation to gather
small non partisan helps and contributions by people, small companies,
etc...  It is still embryonic. But the idea is to help people coordinating
without interfering with the coordination.

This is what we have been trying doing recently. I hope it may help.
Chair, france@large
