    This one should get quite a lot of eyeballs,

    Search google for "Dissident members force rethink at auDA" to see the article.

    Pity there is no publicity for the .au proposal with all this. Maybe that will blow up at a later point.

    On Domainer today, I feature two good short audio segments from Brett Fenton and Adrian Kinderis. Well worth a listen imo.

    Erhan Karabardak's responses and "spin" (as Chair of the meeting) are also something to behold!

    It concerned me how Cameron referred to auDA a couple of times as "the company". Of course there's nothing technically wrong with calling it a company, but we all know it as an organisation. After all, it's auda.org.au, not auda.com.au...

    Why change the language that is used to describe auDA? Given that the auDA website lists all of his previous roles as government based, it would have to be quite a deliberate change to start referring to his employer as the company.

    I just found it a little strange.

    Remember when Brett Fenton asked Erhan at the SGM if the Board had full confidence in the CEO? Then followed lots of nods and affirmations - though Erhan wouldn't allow us to ask each individual Director.

    Great article in The Age today about CBA. Loved this bit:

    Well, let's concentrate on the positive - and what we can control.

    Given all the circumstances, I can't imagine Dr Michaella Richards being re-elected at the AGM in a few months.

    I think it was going to get very North Korean if they all were made to pledge support.

    I saw this photo recently doing the rounds on social media. A metaphor perhaps? :)

    I noticed on auDA website the publication of dates for Past Directors;

    Past Directors
    Name Period
    Stuart Benjamin 14/11/2016 - 14/11/2017

    Isn't that ODD?

    That start date would be wrong as well?

    Luckily they don't run a registry.

    Well picked up, Scott.
    If benefit of the doubt is given, and someone at auDA hasn't deliberately tried to create a "full non-event - nothing to see here" term-served record into the history books, at least now that it's pointed out, this accidental error obviously needs to be changed to reflect reality.
