Yes Carlton +1

>The ICANN Strategy Panel on Multistakeholder
>MSI Panel) and The Governance Lab @ NYU <http://thegovlab.org/> (The
>GovLab) recently launched an online engagement effort aimed at helping to
>design a 21st century Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers
>(ICANN) ­ the public interest organization responsible for coordinating
>Internet¹s Domain Name System (DNS).
>We are writing to request your participation in this important initiative
>and to help us spread the word!
>The MSI Panel has been charged with:
>   - Proposing new models for international engagement, consensus-driven
>   policymaking and institutional structures to support such enhanced
>   functions; and
>   - Designing processes, tools and platforms that enable the global ICANN
>   community to engage in these new forms of participatory
>The Panel is a small group of seven with no monopoly on the best ideas for
>what ICANN should or should not do to coordinate the DNS in the public
>interest. All suggestions to make ICANN more effective and more democratic
>­ whether constitutional, structural, legal, procedural or technological ­
>will be welcome.
>While we cannot decide for ICANN, the aim of the MSI Panel is to use its
>authority to push for real change. Thus, we want ideas that are concrete
>and specific for innovative processes, structures, platforms, and
>techniques to design a 21st century ICANN.
>To gather and organize your input ­ we¹re launching this campaign in three
>*Stage 1: Idea Generation* ­ Starting November 19th and running for six
>weeks via an ideation platform, *Ideascale.* You can access our MSI Panel

>any and all concrete ideas you have. You can rate and rank others¹ for
>importance and practicality. *November 19 - December 31*.
>*Stage 2: Proposal Development* ­ Submissions will be grouped into general
>proposals and opened to discussion using a blog with line-by-line
>annotation features. This phase will be designed to take ideas closer to
>implementation. *January 14 - January 21.*
>*Stage 3: Collaborative Drafting* ­ Using a wiki, we will invite
>collaborative drafting on specific proposals that the Panel will submit to
>the ICANN CEO, Board and community. *January 28 - February 11.*
