> Lets figure out how to fund it

Maybe, just for one year, we can put aside CROPP and other project requests
and just say to ICANN  that we'd like to use our resources to actually
survey -- INDEPENDENTLY -- Internet end users?
Isn't that the best possible -- and most mission-relevant -- outreach we
can do? Just think of how much money they're saving on ALAC travel this
year. Let's put that to use.

I don't even care if ICANN insists on sourcing the polling contractor to
get the best deal. But we get to pick the questions and audience, and we
get first and full access to the results.

Other than that, maybe a joint venture with ISOC or a foundation come to
mind, But the latter won't be easy. Any outside org will see ICANN swimming
in money and wonder (with justification) why one of its bylaw-defined
constituent bodies needs to be resourced from the outside.
