  1. Today's New York Times has a story "Vulnerable Voices" Lash Out as Companies Sway Climate Talks.  It talks about how 300 industry groups are free to roam the negotiations in Bonn's climate change negotiations as stakeholders. The story details objections being raised about undue influence to undue corporate influence by various nations. The "climate" at ICANN is very different. Not only do the companies participate as stakeholders, they have voting majorities. It wasn't supposed to be that way at the start of ICANN - the users had a majority in early iterations. How can we move toward user majorities on the ICANN board. How can we assure that NOMCOM nominees are committed to control by individual internet users of ICANN governance processes?
