Yesterday, I published a couple of audio clips from the auDA AGM held on the 28th November.
Here are the next few snippets. Apologies again for the quality – they were done from a distance.
In this first one, Luke Summers (eBranding.com.au on DNT) asks some good questions about regulation and red tape in the .au space. This is answered by both the auDA Chairman (Stuart Benjamin), and the CEO (Cameron Boardman).
The second segment is from Sean Fogarty. He asks some hard questions about direct registrations. Answered by Chairman and CEO.
In the third snippet, Sean asks about memberships and the previously proposed registry tender. Given the furore over the AusRegistry announcement yesterday, you might find some of the CEO’s comments quite interesting. In retrospect, he chose his words rather carefully. The art of being an ex-politician!
At 1:02 of the recording, you can hear another member in the room interrupt the CEO’s response with these words:
“It’s a serious question. Is it going to be a closed tender; or an open …. (indistinguishable)”
What do readers think?
