Lisbon right now via webcast:

Yesterday we had the General Assembly oft EURALO, the regional at-large organisation where
I represent Wikimedia CH and Wikimedia Österreich AS members of ICANN At-Large. I will
serve another term von the EURALO board.
We had a very interesting visit from ICANN's new president and CEO Fahdi Chehade. With
its multi-stakeholder approach and also developed and grown based in external needs and in
ever-changing environment it faces similar challenges like the Wikimedia movement. This
was a surprising understanding for me, having experienced ICANN as a big, bureaucratic
organisation. I am aiming toward an exchange, being aware that is still hard to be heard
within ICANN but without our critical and demanding voices we give away our ability to
influence policy making on the Internet.
