   Excellent on both counts.

     I will add to your request to include video streaming.  The Internet
     Community in Puerto Rico and our government legislature is following this
     case very closely. I think that it will very instructive for these people
     to watch and hear these discussions as they happen, specially when they
     happen at a global level.
     By the way, I will be glad to be one of the presenters.

     Seth, Heidi...
     The NA-RALO wants to request, if possible, two rooms for two separate
     events at Dakar.
     One room is needed for a discussion to present the "findings of the
     NA-RALO's Task Force on Puerto Rico's ccTLD Controversy," or something to
     that  effect.  One  hour,  room for 20 people, audiovisual, Spanish
     translation  if  possible, French too if we can have it. Presenters
     tentatively will be Eduardo Diaz if he wants to, as well as Garth Bruen,
     and I'll moderate. Possible remote dial-in. We will also need space on the
     event calendar to promote the event, as I would guess there will be
     interested participants.
     A second room is needed, and added to the event calendar, for an open
     discussion to develop NA-RALO's North American Internet users' survey on
     prioritizing policy for NA-RALO and ICANN. One hour, audiovisual, French
     and Spanish if possible, room for 20 people. We also need schedule space
     for this as there will no doubt be some strong opinions on survey content.
     Note that the working group is evolving a course of action that would
     involve an ALS survey, as well as a general North American users' survey.
     I realize this is probably late notice, but both events will be worthwhile
     and need stakeholder interest.
     If necessary, we could also append both these sessions to scheduled
     at-large activities, assuming that's OK with the ALAC ex-com, but would
     still need promotion that they are happening.
     Please let me know what the possibilities are, and at that point I can
     provide further details on content of the sessions, etc. Please note we
     don't want to be exiled to some dusty corner of the conference center on
     Thursday at 7 p.m., or jammed into the interim slot between the last
     session  on  Wednesday,  and  the  Gala,  when  everyone's  getting
     dressed/hammered, or at 6 a.m. on Friday.
