Hello James,

Thanks for the share, did i hear someone still with the view that there is
no political side to the oversight? ;)

However irrespective of whether the oversight gets finally transitioned or
not. I think ICANN should still attempt to improve on its internal
accountability process. Perhaps in preparation for the future.

Although i think this if this bill finally get passed into law, it will
defeat all what the US has claimed to stand for (Openness and internet

Fingers crossed...
