Re: [alac] Sitefinder -- ICANN informed beforehand?

Paul Twomey took office at the end of March 2003 (see http://www.icann.org/biog/twomey.htm).
One year ago the CEO was Stuart Lynn.
And incidentally, did he not play with words meaning the previous "improvement", with the management of IDN?

From the Boston Globe <http://tinyurl.com/nsf6>:

  VeriSign began work on the system a year ago, spokesman Tom Galvin
  said. "We began to think of a service that would help improve Web
  navigation," he said. Galvin said VeriSign informed a major
  Internet regulatory body, the Internet Corporation for Assigned
  Names and Numbers (ICANN), of the Site Finder plan. He said ICANN
  president Paul Twomey raised no objections.

  An ICANN spokeswoman said she could neither confirm nor deny this.
