Bret Fausett complains about secret meetings at ICANN, and reads the one-day board retreat planned for Rome as a bad thing. I disagree: When the public board meetings that we are seeing for “transparency purposes” are mostly smoke and mirrors anyway (and the existence of secret board dinners is a widely-held secret by itself), it’s good news and a step towards a less-nonsense ICANN to see an early announcement of a board retreat.
