I begin to understand why it took ICANN so long in the past to produce the transcripts of its physical meetings. I just had a look at the “dirty” transcript of a WHOIS conference call. “Bark access” (as opposed to bulk access) was just one of the lesser evils introduced by a notetaker who was obviously not familiar with the technical terms and abbreviations used by the task force members. Transcripts of some things I said were just incomprehensible to myself without looking at the notes I was using during the call. [Note that I’m not blaming anyone (except possibly myself for talking too quickly).]
