In my personal experience, things go well when there is a specific common
agenda. Consider that the CCWG on Internet Governance -- an initiative
sprung out of the ALAC/NCSG meeting in Buenos Aires and co-chaired by
Olivier and Rafik -- collected enough steam community-wide to be cited as a
reason for the dissolution of the Board Special Committees.

I'd certainly call that a win. So we know it's doable.

I find other areas of collaboration possible as ALAC starts exploring
privacy issues more (the Singapore workshop we held on TOR was surprisingly
well attended and may likely be repeated). OTOH, I might hope that NCSG --
at least some bits of it -- might find common ground with, for instance,
the intense At-Large dissatisfaction with the utility and enforceability of
Public Interest Commitments as they exist now in the new gTLD program.

Wouldn’t this be a worthy topic for some drill down discussion in the

Wolf is involved with identifying Subject Matter Experts for the various
thematic sessions being done as part of the ATLAS program. Have a talk with
him; there's room for this.
