> Looks great. I really like the opportunity for two rounds of comments from

> General Concerns:
> -not sure of decision-making process if there is disagreement (consensus?
> Democratic vote?).
> -not sure of transparency issues if there is strong opposition to a point

> how it will be handled.
> Re: IRP website, fb activity
> I?ll be attempting to move content from the old hacked IRP site to a new

> Season's greetings,
> btw/I think a Steering Com mailing list is a good idea. For me, Tues is
> better than Wed to meet at 18:00 CET.

> Dear Biel, dear steering committee peers, dear IRPlers
> @Biel: thanks for managing the election process. we all know that error is
> human and while i would have appreciated to work with Heike in the steering
> committee, I am positive that her participation (as well as that of the
> other candidates who ran) will be very valuable and valued no matter in
> whether they are in the steering committee or not.
> @the freshly elected steering committee (SC) coleagues:
> (1) CONGRATULATIONS - This is going to be an exciting year and I am very
> much looking forward to working with you.
> (2) we now have to proceed to elect a chair amongst the 14 SC members. The
> charter simply says elect, which in my understanding could be via vote or
> consensus. I think it would be ideal to find consensus, but let's open the
> floor for nominations and then deliberate.
> I would like to nominate Lisa Horner as IRP Chair. Lisa has been
> continuously furthering the development of our coalition and in fact many
> times she was the leading force behind organizing and running meetings and
> collabowritings. Thanks for all the work you did so far, I hope you accept
> the nomination.
> Maybe the easiest would be to have a conference call? I would be happy to
> meet next tuesday or wednesday? Given that we have two SC members from Asia
> I would suggest to stick to the 18.00 CET time, but I am of course flexible.
> (3) all steering committee members will have to choose whether you want to
> serve one or two years on the steering committee - please announce your
> choice on the list. Our charter states: "IRP will elect a steering
> committee, at least two of which will serve for one year and at least two of
> which will serve for two years. [...] Nominees will select which term length
> they prefer.
> I am happy to serve for two years.
> (4) I propose that we setup a separate steering committee mailing-list
> which all SC members give high priority when dealing with their email. We
> all know that email traffic can be overwhelming and to have a method to
> quickly discuss and decide on a time-critical matter (e.g. whether or not to
> endorse an appeal or other document) would be very helpful.
> @all IRPlers: thanks for voting and for your continued interest and
> participation in our cause! The number of 44 votes might sound little,
> however this is a significant organizational development from the 8 folks
> who simply volunteered in the first year of the steering committee's
> existence, and the "improvised steering committee" we setup in the wake of
> the merger last year.
> In closing, I would be very interested to discuss and hear your perception
> of the mandate / schedule for the Expert Review & Consolidation of our
> "Charter of Human Rights and Principles on the Internet" sent by Meryem and
> forwarded by me on Dec. 14th ("Re: Proposal for IRP Charter Revision")
> And of course it would be good to have some more community input for the
> Charter itself.
> To a good year for Internet Rights and Principles!
