I think that the internet should be left open. It is true that generates
discussion. Like "Public interest" we are not clear about the definition,
but we do many things in the public interest without having that definition.

We can continue discussing the definition of both concepts, and continue
working ...

Goran himself in a meeting said something similar to this, although I do not
remember what concept: if you ask me the definition, I do not have it, but
we are doing many things even without the definition.

Dear Alan,

- Regarding the "open Internet" issue. I strongly support it staying. We
will still need to consider the ICANN mission, but if we restrict things too
much, we will end up doing ONLY things that ICANN itself could or should be
doing and we will have lost a HUGE opportunity to do really good things with
what is likely to be close to 1/4 of a billion dollars. If we end up wasting
that, it would be a pity.

I support the "open Internet" but the problem I have is that there are calls
to define what the "open Internet" is. It just smells like another debate to
define what "the public interest" is.
Kindest regards,
