Dear Bill
 
bad news. Meeting in Dresden was much longer and took more time than expected so I am unable to come with a revised text. I am also still little bit confused what to add, what the cut and what the general environment of the article is. 
 
My proposal is that we meet on Wednesday afternoon, sitting together and discussing the options, going through the text page by page - if needed - and make a final decision. I am very sorry about that. One of the most painful expierences I had recently in publishing:  But probably we misunderstood somewhere and have now difficulties to come together. 
 
We also should use the time to discuss all the other stuff: from IGF to GIGANET. I have no other obligation on Wednesday. As I said I will arrive about 2.00 p.m. in Geneva and will go straigth to my hotel "Arcade" on Cornavin Station. You can call me under *49-171-6324889.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  There are a number of points in
the ICC doc on which it's easy to agree---assuming we basically wish the IGF
to remain as it has become. If on the other hand there is still a desire for
it to be more than a conference venue for some interesting conversations,
per previously adopted caucus positions, then the ICC vision would seem to
be a bit different.

Given that the caucus lacks two of the ICC's facilitative attributes (paid
staff, fairly consistent preferences among members) and our difficulties
reaching agreement post-WSIS, it's not obvious that we could come up with a
parallel contribution to the stock taking.  But it would be good to hear
from our coordinators and others as to whether there's interest in trying
(which could end up being a first test of the charter's decision making
procedures---might need the appeals team etc).  If there is, presumably it'd
need to be submitted at least a week prior to the event if there were to be
any chance of it being read...

Best,

Bill
