Subject: NOMCOM 2014-15: Results of Random Selection
Random selection of the voting members for this year's Nomcom has been executed. There were two additional issues which need to be reported: 1) a second typo was in the seeds on the date/day of the Euromillions. The day was indicated as Friday July 5, but Friday was July 4 (the intended date). Euromillions is not drawn on Saturdays. I believe that there was no ambiguity about this. 2) the Treasury data on the US National debt for July 3 did not become available until close to 5pm on Monday July 7. Once it became available, myself, Allison Mankin and Matt Lepinski ran the rfc3797 process, the results are below. The following list presents the individuals selected using the previously published seeds and the algorithm from RFC 3797. The details of random selection can be found at the bottom of this message. I have contacted 5 of the people by voice. Three more had not provided phone numbers, and I have contacted them by email. Two more are sleeping, and I will contact them tonight (their tomorrow) by voice. The committee consists of: 047 Dacheng Zhang, Huawei 122 Stig Venaas, Cisco 035 Xiaohu XU, Huawei 086 Yunfei Zhang, Coolpad 131 Russ White, Ericsson 043 Tissa Senevirathne, Cisco 039 A THIRD HUAWEI AFFLIATION, Draw again. 139 Murray Kucherawy, Facebook 101 Michael Jones, Microsoft 133 Lixia Zhang, UCLA 064 Ari Keränen, Ericsson pick #7 was a third person with a Huawei affliation, so an additional entry was drawn. See RFC3777 section 4, point 17, paragraph 2. This email is the first of two emails announcing the results, as per RFC3777 section 4, point 17, paragraph 3. This begins the one week community review of the selection - please let me know ASAP of any problems in the selections. The challenge period will close at at 23:59 EDT (UTC -4) on Wednesday July 16 2014. Two days have been added to the challenge week due to the delay in availability of the seeds. 01. 2014-Mar-28 Nomcom Chair Announcement made. 02. 2014-May-15 FIRST message volunteers 03. 2014-May-29 SECOND message volunteers 04. 2014-Jun-12 THIRD message volunteers 05. 2014-Jun-19 Timeline and Seeds for Random Selection 06. 2014-Jun-26 Final Announcement of Qualified Volunteers 07. 2014-Jul-03 Raise issues on qualified volunteers by 23:59 EDT. 08. 2014-Jul-06 Seed values available from seed sources 09. 2014-Jul-06 Run random selection algorithm and publish results 10. 2014-Jul-07 challenge process begins *WE ARE HERE* 11. 2014-Jul-16 challenge process ends 12. 2014-Jul-17 Results of Random Selection Once again, thank you to everyone who volunteered.
