Discussion in 'Domain Name Disputes' started by Whois-Search, Dec 18, 2006.
Just got this on nom-announce:
This raises soo many questions:
1. In the interests of the 'wider stakeholder community' - why has this invitation NOT been made open to the general public, in particular .uk registrants?
2. Can we normal registrants as 'the great unwashed' attend the event?
3. Why is the meeting so short?
4. Who will be on the panal?
5. What is the purpose of the meeting and its panel?
1 and 2 are very good questions. I booked within about 15 minutes of the email being sent out - so if there is no space for me then you'll have the answer Sneezy. :twisted:
As to 3, 4 and 5 - why not make it at least half a day and have some sort of agenda. I'm quite happy to do a 30 minute slot with a breakdown of bad things in the DRS that need changing - or even if they want to be radical "Should Nominet still have a DRS?". FOC - and happy to pay my own fare back from Oz too!
...I also have registered to attend - so lets see what happens!
...Agreed - 1.5 hours with meet, greet and snacks is hardly what I would call a sensible meeting with any real agenda to discuss the issues at hand - A full day with a propper agenda is required!
...My place has now been confirmed
I'm guessing Beasty that a place for you has also been confirmed, seeing as you applied so early.
So who else is planning on attending???
Indeed it has!
...It'll be nice to see you there!
By the way - just found this response the the DRS consultation from Grandin: http://www.nominet.org.uk/digitalAssets/10580_Lee_Grandin.pdf
...I'm looking forward to 'Part 2'! :mrgreen:
On the basis of this I think Lee should definitely attend the consultation meeting :twisted:
I have booked a place to. However I have the feeling it will attract disgruntled domainers and ip lawyers ......that'll be us three then lol
I think an hour and a half is damage limitation on Nominet's part - but i'm sure we can go for a drink after
... :lol: it'll be good to see you there!
...Agreed - 1.5 hours is not enough for a proper debate and it would seem that this is somewhat of a 'window dressing exercise' - lets hope I'm prooved wrong!
...DEFINITELY - I will no dobt be going down on the train, so a pint or two after the match is very much on the cards! :mrgreen:
Have you asked Nominet why it is only 1 and half hours
