Fortunately, with Don Blumenthal, we have a working group member who not only fits that bill, but who also brings significant relevant experience to the role.  Most recently, I had the opportunity to serve with Don on the Thick Whois PDP WG, where he took on an important leadership role for one of the most critical subgroups, and did an excellent job, in my opinion.

I would like to second Steve’s opinion of Don’s performance in coordinating the tasks of the data protection and privacy sub-team of the “thick” Whois PDP WG.

I have no doubt that Don would do a great job at chairing this WG, if he is willing to accept the nomination.

I guess I’m more than fine with either of these two choices for the WG’s leadership position.
