So far the Internet Governance Caucus group process and the Governance
list discussions have been amicable - an appeals team member will only
be needed when they aren't.

I've used listening and process skills when chairing the International
Disability Caucus and several California boards, as well as when
administering email lists.

I have some UN experience developed during five years of work with the
AdHoc Committee which led to the December 2006 adoption of the
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

I'm a full-time volunteer, have no financial interest, do have a
strong bias towards transparency, level field, inclusion, access for
all.  In particular, developing connections by using email changed my
life from fringe outsider to articulate spokesperson.
I am the International Disability Alliance (ICT) Technical Expert,
serve as a liaison between those disability interests and this work,
read my email regularly.

I attended both WSIS meetings, the Athens IGF, voted for the charter,
have been a subscriber to this list for a while, have plans to go to
