ICANN's by-laws impose a strong obligation to make its decision making processes and decisions visible to the Internet community:

ARTICLE III: TRANSPARENCY AND PROCEDURES

Section 1. GENERAL

The Corporation and its subordinate entities shall operate to the maximum extent feasible in an open and transparent manner and consistent with procedures designed to ensure fairness.

Under that provision, I feel that it is my duty as a director to clearly articulate to the Internet community my decisions and why I have decided as I have.

In addition, as an elected board member, it is necessary that the electorate know what I am doing as a board member so that when the next election comes around, should I chose to run, they may give credit where credit is due or to hold me accountable for my errors.  This, too, is part of ICANN's obligation to operate in an "open, transparent, and accountable" manner.

I will be building this diary as I go.
