Thanks for posting the article which has it merits towards solving a
difficult problem.

I notice that it contemplates reducing the four month communication campaign
to two.

I think a more hangs on this campaign and we (community) are not paying much
attention to it. 

In most parts of the world the gTLD program is unknown - we need to ensure
the gTLD's are not just open to the enlightened few who attend ICANN
meetings.  This is the purpose of the communications plan.  In this present
environment we expect about 500 applications.

However, with a  successful campaign, and mainstream media running with the
story.  I think we will see human 'herd mentality'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herd_mentality  and tens of thousands of

The draft communications plan is posted here

Apologies for being slightly 'off piste' to the thrust of your article and
all the hard work that has gone into it. Nether the less worth a comment.

Best regards

Asunto: [bc-gnso] Attempt to bridge Board GAC impasse

Hello All,

For those that have been tracking the GAC new gTLD Scorecard one of the
areas in which there seems to be an impasse is in connection with what the
GAC has deemed an Early Warning system for those strings that might give
rise to important public policy considerations. I recently co-authored an
article attempting to bridge this gap, see

Any constructive feedback would be welcomed.

Best regards,
