Re: #1 meeting of 2010
@Robert of course you are right about finding a time that works for most -
it's just a pretty tedious process and you'll never accomodate everybody
(I'd suggest we alternate every month)
oh and some agenda points are in my initial mail
I setup a skype confcall to which you can also dial-in from phones
Attached is a calendar event for this conference.

Noon tomorrow (EST) - fine with me. I will only be able to be on the call
for approx 45 min. If there's an agenda, please send in advance
please consult with everyone next time in regards to the time. Would be
good to find a time that works for those in east asia (china, japan, etc)

Subject: #1 meeting of 2010
Should we meet this thrusday at 18.00 CET or 9am PST? I think it would be
important to discuss this years work.
a) think about a last round of input for the charter
b) the mandate for the expert review group
c) a procedure/schedule for choosing the chair
I can provide a telco where people can dial-in using a local land-line or
we can use the conf-call system we used before?

Subject: Re: [IRP] IRP-DC elections results
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
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
(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
And of course it would be good to have some more community input for the
To a good year for Internet Rights and Principles!
