It's an interesting interview in which she claims to support the existence of the alternative DNS roots, but at the same time states that ICANN should not cooperate with them. She also states that it is inappropriate for either a single entity, or the U.S., to control the DNS, but still supports ICANN (a single, U'S. government sponsored entity) as the legitimate controller.
Needless to say, she also continues with the claim that ICANN reprsents a consensus on how the Net should be run despite the fact that much of the interview focuses on conflicts between ICANN and other factions on the Net. ;-)
The interview, really, highlights the controversies that marked Esther's tenure as ICANN's Chair and raises the possibility that these controversies were not only never resolved at ICANN (much less on the Net in general), but that they were never resolved in her own mind either.
