I think a second registry should be setup and RUNNING by January 1st... 

I see two organisations having the ability to do this.

1. Connect.com.au
       - The currently admin the .net.au registry, and have for years.
	 I think they have done and EXCELLENT free job, and are doing a 
	 commercial quality job at the moment. They have the infrastructure,
	 the experience and the TRUST (VERY VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT) of the
	 industry. They have PROVEN THEMSELVES to us that they can do a decent
	 job. They even deal with my annoying calls at times, and I dont pay
	 them anything... I, and Im sure any other ISP's would support 
	 connect.com.au performing such a role.. no.. I wonder if they are
	 Interested ;)

       - Well.... not up and running yet, but has the expertise to do so.
	 Geoff Houston (who runs .edu, .gov) is on the board, and also the
	 Secretary of the ISOC (big one). Connect.com are involved and so are
	 many other important people. I think they would be able to run a 
	 very reliable registry, which would also be trust worthy.

	 Perhaps ISOC-AU and Connect.com could do it together? I know they 
	 represent the feeling of the ISP's and I for one will be joining
	 just before the AGM on November 27th 1996.

Well.. thats my say ;)
