    I had said that one of the signs to show when the Domain Industry is NOT doing well is, whenever Gilmour didn't travel thousands of miles, from Australia to USA, to attend TRAFFIC. Alas, it's happened! It means the industry has got to do better, from

    No I didn't meet anyone specifically from China....although there was a lot of people there. I think that it could be worth going to future ICANN meetings to meet more people from around the world.
