The Management of the Internet

During the recently concluded IGF I had an opportunity to participate in a debate regarding the merger of ICANN and the ITU to form one regulator for the Internet. Well my team lost the debate but I have decided to make my true position known on the issues regarding the control of the Internet.

From its origins as inter connected networks, the Internet has developed rapidly into a worldwide tool for delivery of virtually anything that can be imagined. Thus far, the Internet has… Continue

Hi Emmanuel,
I can see Seiiti included gender on the profiles so no mistakes even if a photo is not included :-)

On a serious note, I am trying to come up with a write-up on the IGF-S experience, would you be interested?

Hi Emmanuel - thanks for volunteering for the collaboration on the design for the strategy for IGF. May I ask you to join the Power! group? That will be very important for our work together. Thanks!

Hi Emmanuel - I see you posted in the IGCBP-Talk a message about youth initiatives. I am very interested to see you, Rose, or anyone of this interesting initiative to create a Group in this platform to centralize and foster this discussion.

Rose, who has been acting as a focal point, has not yet created her profile after my invitation but I imagine she will do it soon. In the meantime, if you agree, you may create the Group and keep the ball rolling together with her and the group. What do you say?

It would be an interesting challenge for you (and a learning experience for me) to see how you guys would have the interaction in the ning platform. If you can do it this week, the better, because I am compiling information about the advantages of the ning platform and would like to use this data as a success story.
