Henry, the remote hubs actually do this: they watch the webcast together, either physically in one room, at a meeting, or "virtually", all online. Is that what you mean? Or did you mean one of our IGCBP class groups? What is your idea?

Thanks Ginger, here I go .... I happen to notice the number of persons participating remotely. At the IGF09, I could count three or four persons participating remotely in some sessions. I notice it must be a challenge and logistical having more persons effectively participating remotely. A challenge: Could we endeavour to have say, a "whole classroom - 12-25" participating remotely from one or two pilot sites?

--I think that a structure for Remote Participation should be built right into the design of the workshops to ensure that the panel is prepared to include remote interaction.
RP is very important for IGF. The good experiment done at Sharm should be continued and further developed. Based on my user experience of this year, I believe there should be a unified platform for RP to all the workshops. Webex is a good one but not open-sourced. Secondly, there should be some guidelines to all the organizers that remoters should be treated equally to the present. I do notice that some moderates overlooked the questions raised online and triggered complaints. Thirdly, IGF should seriously consider the possibility of allowing "virtual workshops" with all or most speakers presenting online. Of course, there may still need a room allocated and a staff moderating the process.

Ginger,

Stephanie is right! Perfect timing for the launch of this group!

One thing that I wanna to point out is the workshops/panels/Foruns schedule. There were several activities regarding the same issue, for example child protection, which happen at the same time! This way, the multistakeholder community was divided...

Should IGF allows more that one activity concerning the same theme at the same time? In my opinion the simultaneity of same topics events may polarize the discussions and reduce the multistakeholder environment....

Ginger, excellent idea of starting an IGF2010 group early, while IGF09 is still fresh in everyone's mind.

--How can we get HR onto the main agenda? Are there others who would like to see it as a main theme?
Definitely. Big issue, with many branches. To a certain extent, these branches are already being discussed as separate issues. Bringing them together under a main HR cap might add more weight though.

--I would like to support the IGF Secretariat's intention to achieve captioning for every workshop and panel. We should let them know that this is important.
Another excellent initiative if this goes through. The current captioning has already proved very useful for both those present (who needed to go back to "verify" certain comments before official positions were taken), and those who are/were not, and while live captioning was useful per se, the whole texts were added on the website relatively quickly. Benefits of workshop captioning are enormous too, especially for RP.

Good questions Ginger, right now, I'm busy but will comment soon.

Ginger, I am still with the idea of pushing through with "rights" as the next theme for the IGF. Also, RP should be highlighted more on the next OC. Will definitely make it to the IGF 10. ;)

Thanks, Ginger, for planning well ahead for IGF 2010. It is always interesting to test the connectivity from my network. Amazingly I'm able to login now though twitter is still blocked. Hopefully it would be a good sign (not sigh-:) for more open access.

Hi everybody! Yes, it is that time again: Time to start planning for the IGF, while we have IGF on our minds, and are setting our goals for 2010. For me, a big priority is planning for the Open Consultations in February: decisions will be made--now is the time to prepare! IGF 2010 has already begun!

--How will workshops be designed? There will probably be few workshops in 2010. How will priorities be determined? Anybody interested in making comments/proposals/suggestions?

--I think that a structure for Remote Participation should be built right into the design of the workshops to ensure that the panel is prepared to include remote interaction.

--How can we get HR onto the main agenda? Are there others who would like to see it as a main theme?

--I would like to support the IGF Secretariat's intention to achieve captioning for every workshop and panel. We should let them know that this is important.

There are many ways to become involved in the planning for IGF 2010. What are your priorities? What can we collaborate on?

Ready, Set, GO!!!
