IETF - March, Adelaide - and the IETF does NOT deal in DNS politics
(smart chaps with a knack of learning quickly :-) )

ICANN - March, Cairo (yes, Egypt, not Sydney)

ICANN DNSO - - No notice of the next meeting (last meeting in Los Angeles
       in November 1999, with ICANN meeting)

ICANN GAC (Governmental ADvisory Committee) - if they are meeting in
       Sydney anytime soon its not announced on the GAC web page.

ISOC - nope - next meeting Yokohama, July

APNIC - nope - next meeting, Seoul, Korea, February.

So whoever these 'Internet Authorities' are they sure are right in the
thick of things in the international Internet name & address governance

(what is an "internet authority" anyway? Everyone appears to be
having a really really hard time imposing their own particular flavour
of 'authority' on everyone else in any case, and self-proclamation
of being the source of authority appears to empty rhetoric these
days - indeed, the phrase strikes me as more like a tautology these days :-))
