… that’s the ALAC statement that Karl Auerbach suggests we make everywhere until we have all the regional organizations in place. I’m sure that this input would be appreciated. But I’m also sure that it would have precisely zero influence.The GNSO policy processes are not waiting until we can convince enough at-large structures to join ALAC and to provide some legitimacy. The processes are running. We have some ways to lobby participants and to provide some analysis from an individual user’s point of view. In my view, it would be entirely irresponsible not to make use of the — admittedly limited — possibilities we have.(Also, “we are involved there and there and there” is a much sexier — but maybe not sexy enough — marketing message than “with a lot of luck, we might have a chance to get involved there, but we haven’t tried yet, so we can’t tell you.”)
