Profile Information

Did you take the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme - IGCBP from DiploFoundation? If so, in which year? Who was tutoring you?
2011, Priyanthi Daluwatte
Where did you ¨discover¨ this Community portal?
From Ginger
What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?
I am a journalist for Radio Thailand English Language Service and I teach English as well. I am also a PhD Candidate in Development Administration, so my research and studies have touched on internet governance. I've also participated in the Open Government workshop at the University of London last year.
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
It has really shown me a whole new world which I didn't realize existed! I am much more knowledgeable and understand the "issues" and "debates" about IG now, so when I read about it in the news, I know what they're talking about. I never paid much attention before. For my news report at Radio Thailand, I even did a segment on cloud computing!! I was so excited to learn about it that I wanted to share this with my listeners and invited an expert to give more information as well! So the IGCBP program has really changed my outlook on IG and the internet as a whole! I feel so luck to have been part of the group and for having been selected to participate in the program!

E-voting in the Philippines

Philippines is a country in Asia and is one of the South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). They were one of the first countries in the continent to try and use e-voting in their last presidential elections.

The Philippines is one of the most corrupt countries in Asia and vote buying, bribery etc. is very common. It is also one of the poorest countries, with a huge population that earns less than a dollar a day. It is also interesting to note that the Philippines is a Catholic…

Chat Session Two: Social Media

Our second chat session dealt with a topic which I feel quite comfortable talking about because I've read quite a bit about it and have attended numerous workshops and conference on it: Social Media. 

The chat session focused primarily on using social media in a newspaper outlet and how it can be used to help with dwindling readership. This is a topic of great concern for many newspapers, especially in the developed world where the number of people buying newspapers has been falling…
