  1. Calvin Browne says:

    Bill has a couple of traits that would make him suitable for this position and which mean I have no qualms endorsing him:

    He is able to listen and comprehend.
    He is able to debate and understand technical (and other) arguments.
    He is able to heed advice.
    He is civic minded.

    All of these traits would serve him, and the ICANN board well, should he be appointed.
