Sala this is a great initiative and I all for it. When I became part of the ICANN community Olivier was one of the first faces I remembered because of his openness, enthusiasm and just plain old happy face:-). Always helpful, ready to explain and just approachable in general.
Thanks for everything Olivier. We are grateful!!
