I'd like to add a bit.
1. Olivier, you missed one of Sebastien's comment. On the right bottom of
the first page. It is written "Join our mailing list: *LINK HERE*"???
2. About "significant numbers of independent members".
The total number of independent At-Large members is only 21. 7 independent
members has NARALO and 14 members - one of our ALS - *European Individual
So, I suggest either to exclude "significant" or to mention 21 as a number
of such members.
3. A pair of comments.
- I'm not agree with the last tow sentences in the box "What is ICANN" -
left bottom on the second page.
"ICANN, formed in 1998, is a not-for-profit global organizantion dedicated
to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes
competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique identifiers."
-> "global organization" is not correct. ICANN is the USA organization,
based in California. I prefer simply to exclude "global"
-> "It promotes competition and develops policy" is not correct. No
competition at all. Policies is the result of bottom up process. Policy is
the result that goes from the SO and AC.
So, I suggest to take one phrase directly from ICANN's Bylaw
instead of the last sentence.
"The mission of ICANN is to coordinate, at the overall level, the global
Internet's systems of unique identifiers, and in particular to ensure the
stable and secure operation of the Internet's unique identifier systems."
- I'm not aggree with the text in the box "What is the European Regional
At-Large organization (EURALO)
-> the last sentencie "Playing a key role in ICANN’s regional strategies,
several RALOs partner with ICANN’s Global Stakeholder Engagement team to
facilitate the development of critical infrastructure for the Domain Name
System." is not clear to me.
We are speaking about EURALO in the box with name "What is the EURALO?".
ICANN has no such document as Regional Strategy for Europe (and also North
-> To "facilitate the development of critical infrastructure for the Domain
Name System" is the issue to think about for GNSO and/or ccNSO, not for
Our goals are (look at the MoU):
= To provide a forum and promote and encourage European Internet users'
participation and involvement in ICANN in an open, accountable and
= To promote, understand and advocate for individual Internet users and to
provide a forum for outreach, co-ordination and exchange of information and
knowledge for persons who live in the European region as defined by ICANN;
= To act as an interface between individual Internet users and ICANN and to
promote skills development and information exchange related to the Internet
= To breach the digital divide and encourage users in developing countries
to participate in EURALO.
= To promote multilingual access to, and participation in, ICANN's work,
and to respect other aspects of cultural diversity
As to me it is not bad to copy above wording or some part to the flyer.
4. I have one comment directly inside the text of the email from Olivier.
To change "end user" to "internet user".
