I didn't say they did. But you have a vested interest in the Internet and
part of that is DNS.  

I still can't go around asking people if they want to be part of something
I have no authority to ask them about.  Michael, can you give me that

I'll be happy to spend the next few days running around asking people who
are not internet commercials if they might like to sit as community interest.

No it doesn't. And I'm happy - after the later discussions of the day - to
put my time into asking people, at my expense. After all, I'multimately
going to gain something from it, be it returns on an investment somewhere
or direct revenue from sales or administration, or maybe just consulting
helping Registrars operate.  <shrug>  That's for later.

>I guess Steve was just hoping you might be willing to do the same.

Personally as I've stated, I can't and won't accept a nomination of myself
to the board whilst I belive I hold a conflict of interest.  Please
convince me that this isn't so, but it won't be easy.

And I can't approach people without authority.  I won't make a fool of
myself wasting their time ane mine telling them all about ADNA for someone
from ADNA to tell them politely I had no authority to take such action.

Lets be realistic.  And I'm sure most of the people I'm thinking of woudl
be more than happy to contribute without any form of renumeration,
considering most of them do it anyway.

      The world operates 24 hours a day ... so do the servers.
