Sorry Wolfgang to take this old message but it contains 2 important points.
About the so-call GEO-TLDs I would like to help you in setting up the
meeting especially because we started some work on .paris.

I am not sure I will be available during the forthcoming 8th meeting of the
ICANN Studienkreis (October 11-12, 2007 in Warsaw) for an EURALO outreach
meeting (Thursday, October 11, 9.00 - 15.00) but I think is a good idea.

I start to work on Egeni Europe 2008 for June (just before the Icann meeting
in Europe) and I think we need to do also something about Euralo.

All the best

Sorry I forgot the proposals:
1. the prepare a workshop for San Juan on Consumer Interests on geographical
TLDs: The working title could be "Consumer Confusion vs. Consumer Choice:
The User Interests in  GEO-TLDs". As we discussed in Lisbon, there is a
growing number of related projects (.berlin, .nyc, .cym, .sco, .london etc)
and there are two main arguments in favour and against. In Germany the local
government which operates berlin.de argues that .berlin would create
consumer confusion while the federal parliament just recently adopted a
resolution arguing GEO-TLDs like .munich, .cologne, .saxony, .bavaria or
.leipzig would bring more competition and more consumer choice. I expect
that the ICANN Board if it has to take decisions on such TLDs  (based on the
GNSO Policy paper and the GAC gTLD principles) will need some input form the
user perspective and this is the ALAC. I would be ready to start the
preparation for such a two hour workshopin San Juan.
2. I propose to use the forthcoming 8th meeting of the ICANN Studienkreis
(October 11-12, 2007 in Warsaw) for an EURALO outreach meeting (Thursday,
October 11, 9.00 - 15.00) for Central and Eastern Europe. I ask all ALS and
other friends of EURALO to send me contcats so that we can do outrech and
invite speakers. I will work together also with the Diplo Foundation. Input
from ISOC Europe is welcome.
