hi all,

thanks for putting up with me learning Adobe Connect "on the fly" during the meeting.

i recorded a few action items and wanted to get them to you while my memory is still fresh.

we agreed to reword the Round-1 Constituency Template to soften it's tone so that constituencies are clear that this round is really seeking ideas and inputs, rather than decisions and positions. Liz volunteered to do this. Liz, could we have that done by tomorrow? presuming that to be the case, we'll continue with the current schedule -- which is to go out to constituencies now, and come back with their thoughts by July 25th (not very long, so don't dally on getting this out to your respective Constituencies). here's a link to the detailed schedule;


various folks volunteered to kick off email threads about the first 6 questions in our portfolio. Dave has set a great example by already getting one going. if the rest of us could get these out over the next day or two, it will provide more time for conversation. here's the list of assignments;

"Who benefits from fast flux, and who is harmed? " - Dave
"Who would benefit from cessation of the practice and who would be harmed? " - Dave "Are registry operators involved, or could they be, in fast flux hosting activities? If so, how? " - Greg
"Are registrars involved in fast flux hosting activities? If so, how? " - Eric
"How are registrants affected by fast flux hosting? " Mike (either Rodenbaugh or O'Connor)
"How are Internet users affected by fast flux hosting? " - Joe

we agreed that it would be very helpful to reach out and collect data about this issue. suggested dimensions included a) how many domains are used, b) how long do they live, c) how many domain-registrants are involved, etc. we also agreed that it would be very useful to identify gaps in the existing data. Rod, Greg and Dave volunteered to pursue this with APWG, CAUSE and other groups that collect this kind of information. why doesn't one of you start an email thread on this -- and have a conversation about how long you need in order to pull back this first-round information. my hope would be that we could have it fairly soon, as it seems very useful for subsequent conversations. could we shoot for a draft in time for the call next week, or is that Too Hard?

we also agreed to reach out to "legitimate users" of Fast Flux to determine their need for continuing the practice. Wendy and Eric agreed to reach out to people on the topic of circumventing censorship, Mike and Mike will reach out to big data-center operators (eg Yahoo, Thompson/Reuters).

that concludes my report,
