[At-Large] Fwd: ATLASIII Participation

Transparency does not demand rigidity and enslavement to petty and
arbitrary rules. My comment stands.

As for utility .... The decision of what topics would be top-of-list in
2019, and the right people to participate in them, could not possibly have
been predicted after ATLAS 2. Even raising this as an issue is surprising;
an appeal to such rigidity of process for its own sake that further proves
that ALAC is enslaved by needless process.

You're right this isn't about me, I have other things to do with my
volunteer time and if ALAC is not interested others are. But the fact that
only two people are attending the Summit  from its home region -- across
the whole of the US and Canada -- ought to be an embarrassment to all who
made the criteria and processes that yielded such awful results.
