[At-Large] ICANN Board Nomination

My main concern for a board nominee is to find someone with the personal 
and organizational skills to be effective.  ICANN's board has long 
standing problems both with internal dysfunction and a chronic inability 
to supervise the staff.  To pick a couple of obvious examples, the board 
has never spent the two minutes to pass a motion to appoint an ombudsman 
as required by the bylaws (preferably someone other than Frank), and 
although I don't have any direct insight into the dithering over .XXX, I 
got the impression of a group that couldn't come up with a process to lead 
to a result.

Avri's background is great, but I don't think I know her well enough to 
say how she'd do in this particular maelstrom.
