Re: [alac] Transfers Assistance Group
Thanks Thomas for your update.
I just came here, Busan, Korea 2 hours ago, trying to make regional outreach by attending APNG (Asia Pacific Networking Group) and AP* (Star) meeting tomorow and Monday where I will talk about AtLarge, will discuss regional formation together with some key folks from Asia Pacific Internet community.
About 2 weeks ago, I went to Beijing and met China's Ministry of Information and Industry and CNNIC people to talk a little bit about regional AtLarge formation. We agreed to keep good exchange of information.
In Asia, we feel it is very difficult to only rely on self-motivated individuals to form AtLarge, and thus trying to talk with government and industry to have their support. I know this approach may be quite different from some folks in US or Europe, but if we are only focusing on "active" individuals, we may end up with a very very few people who may claim to represent the whole Internet users, but I don't think that may work in some areas.
But do not misunderstand, please. We are NOT inviting industry or government folks to take any lead role or direct involvement, but good support. We may try to reach out professionals and experts who may best asses and represent users benefits - some lawyers, economists and other scholors, for example. Of course, your comments and suggests are very much welcome.

The Transfers Assistance Group had its first meeting by telephone conference last night. Unfortunately, Sebastian could not be reached, so I was the only ALAC rep on that call.
