I now see your point Oliver which is mainly about the fact that reaching
out to people may be restricted in ZA and we won't even have new fellows at
ICANN to even reach out to if we decide to go local. I think there will
still be a call for nextGEN? So that could be a group to reach-out to.

By the way, I there will still be opportunity to reach out to the
universities as security there is "somewhat" okay (no where on planet is
safe by the way ;-) ) So it really depends on how important ICANN takes
outreach and how far they want to go in putting it to actualisation.

@Daniel the point is not about me supporting restriction of outreach to
Alumni. I hope that is now clear from my follow-up.
