Friends, the Diplo team has prepared daily summaries of the IGF. Here they go:
Yes, Steph, I agree, but what did you think as the opening session continued? There were more women in the second half, but more importantly, the women like CS Deirdre Williams and EC Digital Agenda Commissioner Neelie Kroes in particular, were outstanding speakers, who really had something to say. It's worth taking a look if you did not see it, and check out the very dynamic speech by the Colombian speaker as well.
I'm following the IGF Opening Ceremony, and can't help but noticing the gender imbalance. So far, all but one of the speakers are male (Deirdre should speak soon). IGF participants are commenting about gender imbalance on Twitter too.
I don't feel this is representative, considering the many active women we know in the IG process, but it would have been good to see more ladies take the stage.
I am looking forward to IGF 2014 Conference.I hope indepth Cyber Security and Governance issues as they affect emerging economies who are on the threshold of full scale adoption and integration of the internet will be addressed. Most of these countries,especially in Africa suffer infrastructure and knowledge constraints in this area.
On behalf of Diplo, Deirdre has shared a call for volunteers to man the Diplo booth at the Village Square at the IGF venue. If you're attending the IGF in Istanbul, please consider helping out, and in the process meet some very interesting people :-)
To volunteer, please indicate your preference on this spreadsheet. Thanks in advance!
