First of all, I am a bit embarrassed about Alan’s praise of my continuing being active once off the Board. Besides that I have been in the loop again also because of my tenure as PIR Board, I am now just an individual Internet user, and my participation to ALAC is simply because this is the best way I can defend my own positions and interests in the net.
About the ALAC Liaison, I have been the first ALAC Liaison, from 2003 until the end of my second term as NomCom-appointed ALAC, in 2006, when I left the Board just to step in again as NomCom-appointed voting Board member. Vittorio, one of the former ALAC Chairs, replaced me as Liaison in 2006.

The first official ALAC Liaison was Vittorio Bertola (until 2007), followed by Wendy Selzer (2007 - 2009) amd Vanda (2009 - 2010) before Sebastian became the first voting ALAC Board member (2010 - 2014). Roberto was selectd by the NomCom (I was a member of NomCom it this time). There had been some other individuals close to At Large who made their way into the board vie tha NomCom as Susan Crawford and Bertrand de la Chapelle, but - as said in a previous mail - the NomCom did partly forget that the orginal plan for the establishment of the NomCom was to open a venue for individuals, close to the At Large philosophy.
