As noted I will not be on today's call as I am at the Internet Subcommittee's 
oversight hearing on ICANN, which has just begun. 
I plan to provide a full report. But let me note two very important things 
before the call begins-
1-There is remarkable turnout both by Members of the Subcommittee and the 
public (SRO in a large hearing room). ICANN is no longer an obscure issue on 
Capitol Hill.  
2-On a bipartisan basis Members have noted in opening statements continuing 
problems with ICANN's functioning (while noting some improvements) and 
expressed great concern to outright opposition to terminating US oversight.
