Sorry to learn this news. I always found your input extremely helpful
and thought you did a great job representing the ALAC. It's not an easy
role and you deserve a lot of credit for what you achieved during your
term on the GNSO.

Dear colleagues,

I have informed ICANN's secretary that I'm resigning from the role
of ALAC's GNSO council liaison effective immediately.

The main reson for this step is that I believe an effective GNSO
liaison ought to be able to participate in the Council's physical
meetings, in private meetings, in hallway conversations.  An
effective GNSO liaison ought to be ALAC's face, as far as the GNSO
is concerned. This is impossible without attending physical ICANN
meetings. I wasn't in Kuala Lumpur due to a conflict with other
travel, and I'll again be in the US when ICANN is meeting in Cape
Town.  This means that I can't, at this point, do the liaison's job

I wish the GNSO in general, and Council in particular, luck and
success in devising policies that truly take into account the
interests of all parties affected -- including those of individual
Internet users.

Speaking personally, the time on Council -- first in an observer
role as co-chair of the GA, then as ALAC's liaison --, was
interesting and instructive.  I'm glad I had the opportunity to work
with you.

Thanks, and kind regards,
