> goes on daylight savings.
> Alan Greenberg:YEs, this week is a transition week EU on, NA not yet
> avri:Did Europe go already?
> Alan Greenberg:llast weekend (2 days ago)
> avri:ah, got back to the US just in time.

> avri:in 2 weeks.
> Gisella Gruber-White:Kristina Rosette and Liz Gasster have joined the call
> Alan Greenberg:2 weeks?? I thought NA switched this coming weekend.

> conversational curiosity.
> avri:Alan, I mean I go back.
> Alan Greenberg:Ahh
> avri:So can we send a final Phase 1 report?
> Alan Greenberg:WE can, but using the word "final" will send signals that are
> differnet from what we are now talking about.
> Alan Greenberg:"differnet" is a technical term used only in networking
> avri:can alwasy capture the horse and put her back in the barn!
> Jeffrey Eckhaus:Agree with Avri. Need to get out of mindset that once "horse
> is out of barn" or " genie out of bottles" that is impossible to go back
> Alan Greenberg:We could, but once there are contracts signed which are less
> restrictive, it will be had (from a level playing field point of view) making
> later contracts more restrictive.
> avri:What level playing ground? We have level playing ground? where?
> Jeffrey Eckhaus:Would love a level playing field. PLease advise when found
> Kristina Rosette:@Mikey: Expert funding request would have to go from
> Council to Board and would be tied to next year's budget. Council doesn't
> have any money that it can itself allocate.
> avri:I am sure the CAM folks are more than willing to work with S&W to make
> our proposal more palatable.
> Jothan Frakes:NO
> Jothan Frakes:please no further delay :)
> Kristina Rosette:I'm just the messenger. . .
> Jothan Frakes:folks are still elated over seeing dates
> avri:this is delay in phase ii, not start date.
> Berry Cobb:@ Jothan, we are no longer tided to Round 1
> Berry Cobb:tied
> Jothan Frakes:ah, that's right
> Jothan Frakes:whew
> Jothan Frakes:I have a bit of a hair trigger over the concept of delay at
> this point
> avri:Jothan, be happy that the horizon time has gone down from 9 month to 6
> months. that is real progress.
> Berry Cobb:My question about funding,..... is how ICANN paid for Salop &
> Wright to come back to review our proposals?
> Jothan Frakes:avri, that is indeed a blessing
> Jothan Frakes:lol
> avri:we are not longer at elephant gestation as we were in the beginning, or
> human gestation as we have been for so long, but are now at baboon gestation
> Gisella Gruber-White:Keith Drazek joined the call
> Jothan Frakes:good analog avri
> Jothan Frakes:I just appreciate that there are now dates...
> avri:there have alwasy been dates.
> Jothan Frakes:not calendar dates
> Jothan Frakes:'later' doesn't fit on a calendar ;)
> Jothan Frakes:now a person can work with end of may
> Jothan Frakes:as opposed to 'after we resolve this list of 'harms'
> avri:assuming you give that date credance. budgeting against such 'certain'
> dates has, arguably, been a financial dificulty for some of the early players
> in this game.
> Jothan Frakes:again, you're right
> Jothan Frakes:back to the topic at hand, I think Jon Nevett made a good
> point, that after we surrendered on phase I we've had a smaller group on the
> Jothan Frakes:and if we're circulating / commenting / curating anything, the
> list is probably the best place to vett them
> Jothan Frakes:so that we get the entire group some exposure to it
> Jothan Frakes:thank you everyone
> Jothan Frakes:have a great week
> Berry Cobb:Mikey, call me if you need help with my proposed plan! Thanks
> Mike O'Connor:this workspace gonna be gone Real Soon Now...
