Excellent panels today: the Remote Participation panel was outstanding. Jovan, Markus and Nermine gave excellent presentations on the IGF and remote. A persons with disabilities rep gave a great perspective. Marilia gave a more practical tech perspective... and of course the remote presenter could not be missing. Great job everyone! Both in theory and in practice.

Can someone tell us about the Arab region panel and privacy?

Hello to everyone in Sharm. I wish I could be there with you. We have a great Remote Hub going, and appreciate your tweets, posts and chats. It helps us keep up.

Have a great evening in Sharm. See you tomorrow.... gp

Sir Tim Berners-Lee spoke about universality and accessibility in the earlier session. He also mentioned the launch of the World Wide Web Foundation. For those who wish to obtain more information there will be a session during the IGF. http://www.webfoundation.org/about

Thanks Tim, I am seeing the tweets, and using WebEx which is working very well. I think I cannot post to the wall... simply because I do not know how ha ha. If you send me your Skype, I will add you to the remote conversation. Thanks so much for your help.

Hey Virginia

The NetVibes page isn't yet very interactive - although there is a comment wall on the front page where you can add in views.

The page itself mostly aggregates together content from other websites (Twitter, Flickr, this network) tagged with 'igf09' so that's the best way to get content onto it.

If you've got suggestions for other ways we could make it interactive do let me know and I will see what we can do.
