Abril i Abril talking about the board’s bad habits of “working, or lack thereof”. Slightly earlier, he mentioned the frequent extensions of board terms. Vint is asking the at-large directors whether they want or don’t want to serve on the transition board. Kraaijenbrink: “So I believe that I have a duty to the corporation to see that it that the transition is done in the right and proper way. So I’m willing to continue on the transition board and be, again, a board squatter.” Fitzsimmons wishes to “transition off the board effective immediately.” Vint: “You can’t leave instantaneously. You have to stay until the close of this board meeting.” Fitzsimmons: “Feel better already.” Linda Wilson: “Board squatter” like Frank and Hans. Uncomfortable with that term. Feels deep sense of obligation to see the transition through, wishes to stay to work with the board until the new board is seated. Andy Müller-Maguhn: Directly elected. Election followed a little bit what he thought the original idea of ICANN was, balance between those affected by policies and those who run the infrastructure. Voted against acceptance of ERC outcome because wrong priorities, and abolishes the possibility for direct elections. Agrees to stay there, still tries to be constructive and follow process, try to point out the right priorities. Impact of intellectual property interest on the free flow of information. Privacy. ICANN has to be careful to watch what it calls its stakeholders, agreement with Blokzijl. Vint: Realize that everyone does a stump speech. Ivan Moura Campos briefly states that he’s willing to stay. Nii Quaynor willing to stay. Katoh-san wants to stay because of original election; feels that he has an obligation to stay on to represent the people. Not only protection of intellectual property, but many other issues. Very obligated to support all those people who are supporting a stable internet. Cohen: Wants to thank the people who are willing to continue to serve. “Board squatter” particularly unkind and unfair. Appreciation for those who committed their time.
