Good afternoon 


With thanks for Marilla for posting this; I attach a note of the session last week.  Am sure several in Community will have also attended as was, as Marilla noted, an open event.  From the office, Tarek Kamel and Laurent Ferrali also attended. 


The note is simply my take on the afternoon; is not a forma ICANN view / opinion.
