Karl Auerbach

Hacker, networking entrepeneur, and Internet activist. Auerbach, a large, burly man with a bushy beard, graduated from UC Berkeley, and received his law degree from Loyola in 1978. He helped craft ICANN's original by-laws to balance the interests of users and industry experts, though ICANN's actions soon veered heavily toward corporate interests. In November 2000 he was elected as one of the five elected representatives in the 19-member board. Auerbach has spent all of his time with ICANN fighting for accountability as the rest of the board tries to make the organization accountable only to governments and corporations.

In 2002, Auerbach sued ICANN for withholding financial information: Auerbach v. ICANN. After winning his case, Auerbach was honored as the 2002 recepient of the CPSR Norbert Wiener award.
