Thank you Joly for the nomination for ALAC.  I do accept it.

I had decided before I ever ran that this was my last term on the GNSO
Council.  During the years before this term I had gotten much more
involved with At Large, and found that when I had to drop back on
At-Large activities, I missed it.  As  board member of ISOC-NY, I have
remained active at the ALS level and on various ALAC working groups,
though much less active than I had been.

My interest in ALAC has to do with several drives:

- to continue pushing the importance of the ALAC forward, relative to
the other AC/SO and before the Board.  ALAC has come a long way since
the beginning, but it still does not get the hearing I think it
deserves.    As we enter a time when the organization has a strategic
mandate on Global Public Interest, I think think this the perfect time. 
I have pushed for greater AC voice over the years and I think I can
help.   The At-Large is one of the more important groups for ICANN

- To continue working on bringing the ALSes more into the ICANN 
picture.  One of At-Large's greatest powers lies in its global spread
and diverstiy.  At-Large as the representative of the users - the people
of the Internet, are the main engine of the constant outreach ICANN
needs to do. But ALSes have to not only join, they should become to
involved; there has to be consultation with the ALSes and bottom-up
activity from those ALAses.  As part of this I would also like to see a
greater effect of the RALOs on the ALAC.

- With the new gTLD process starting up again, I want to make sure that
the things that At-Large tried to get done last time, actually get done
this time.  Personally, I want to see a round devoted to developing
economies and to communities that could not otherwise participate. 

- I want to see the auction money used for developmental and other
global public benefit projects.  While some may question the long term
viability of domain names as money makers, there is no doubt that they
are bringing tons of money into ICANN's coffers.   That money needs to
be directed to developmental activities. Funding the remedial round
refered to above is just one possiblity.

I am open to any questions, and I hope that people will consider voting
for me.
