Hello All,
I share Barrack's proposal. Ephraim's proposal nonetheless is equally
important-but the larger picture that is ALL OVER the world central to
ICANN's activities is the INTERNET END USERS-not specific to technocrats or
That is why I would want us to go for the proposal as modified by Barrack.
In the discussion, every stakeholder that constitute the Empowered
Community can come in and make a submission on how to build their own
resilience in the face of DISASTERS/CALAMITIES/CRISIS etc.
Good day all
