Re: [council] Proposed GNSO Council Agenda 13 August 2009
I like Philip (or is it Chuck's) suggestion. I would much prefer to
have these status updates in advance and plan for shorter Council
meetings as a consequence. It is always my feeling, when listening
through these status updates during our meetings, that the people
giving them are Reading from a written text anyway. If that impression
is correct, then surely it would be no extra trouble to send to text
to the Council list ahead of the meeting. I for one would find it
easier to assimilate these status reports if they were sent as text
rather than read aloud. And if that can mean a 1:30 hour long meeting
instead of a 2 hour meeting, all those involved would probably gain.

While I appreciate the value of written status updates and agree
that it would be good to have them I wonder whether they actually
will save time.
For people who read them, it will give them a chance to think
through the status and have better questions - and this is a good
effect. Yet there will always be people who did not have a chance
to read them, so I believe we will still need to ask for a verbal
report in most cases.

which will need to be discussed.
