Lyman and Brett made a great point earlier - where's the data from the last round. Also missing in action is any qestion of where the five million dollars is. Verisign is getting off easy with the community for once.

Stuart just asked "What can be done at the top-level that can't be done at the second. No one has answered that satisfactorily for me." I'm sure that there is a huge list of answers waiting to be compiled - here's mine; Compete with Verisign.

The Board Public Forum held some gems, again, I'll distill the notes later today. I will note that it seems that the next round of gTLD discussions and selection will be probably be vastly different than the first one was. The hallway crowd noted that they seem to be listening much more closely this time around..and asking much better questions.

The Names Council meeting was long but productive for the most part...I've got some extensive notes that I'll distill later today into something more logical than the form in which they currently exist. TR wonders where Brett is - Brett is less than 10 feet away and TR admits that they've never met. Yet another reason why I still have hope for the Internet... The public comment forum is about to small problem though...there are less than a dozen power outlets in the auditorium. Vint will be shortly drowned out by the sound of low battery warnings from the multitude of dying laptops.
