    It's going to be a very very weird one that, first question...

    Q: What happens if Scotland vote for independence in 2014. Do I need a address in England to keep .uk?

    A: Nominet....... eh, no idea!

    Cardiff ?

    Probably why 'No meeting in Cardiff' this time around with .wales coming in 2014?

    In V1 .uk there was a Nominet .uk Roundtable meeting • 14 November 2012 in Cardiff

    Only leaves Scotland!

    I can only assume it is to be all inclusive of the different countries that make up the UK for Nominet to gather a wide range of views?

    England - had meeting 10th July 13 (10 days after it was released - so not much notice) and another after AGM on 22nd July 13.

    Not holding one in Manchester this time around as the last one on 4 12 12 only gave negative feedback about .uk. ​

    Wales - no point with .wales

    Northern Ireland - no point as the V1. uk meeting in Belfast was cancelled in V1 meeting of 12 12 12 due to lack of interest, so very unlikely to get anybody this time around

    Only leaves Scotland so better tick a box and hold one, so Nominet can show it has been the width and breadth of the UK to canvas opinion.

    p.s. they did hold one in Durban, South Africa but no details of the debate has been released or numbers attending but it does increase the number of meetings Nominet has held.


    Sorry I'm getting so cynical, glad this is .uk consultation is nearly over,
    so I can get back to being an optimist.

    Did anybody here, go to the Glasgow Nominet .uk meeting yesterday or know somebody who might be able to supply some feedback from the meeting?

    (anybody reading from Nominet - that attended would you like to post please?)
