Is all disclosure really disclosure?

A local ISP recently sent emails to their email users advising that the ISP will be migrating to the Google apps platform . As a result customers will be able to take advantage of the benefits and apps available.In my opinion the new functionality would be great, access to my documents from anywhere, ability to collaborate online etc..However I'm concerned about what is not being said.For exampleWhere will my emails be stored ?Which government will have jurisdiction over my data?Individuals may…See More

Participation in policy making, whose responsibility is it ?

I recently completed  the Diplo Foundation Internet Governance Advanced course in Privacy (Aug 2012) and the Introduction to Policy Research (Nov 2012). My project proposal sought to draw attention to the quality of the stakeholder consultation process as a precursor to legislative changes. Specific focus was given to the HIPCAR project on St. Kitts-Nevis which has resulted in proposed and in some cases actual legislative changes in the interception of communications, e-commerce,  transactions,…See More

Taking Stock of IGF 2012 BAKU

Just a reminder to everyone especially those of us who attended the IGF in Baku To send in their suggestions /thoughts as to how the process can be improved.My main suggestion would be to have the plenary sessions reorganised and focus on the reports from the feeder sessions first then we can have the panelists discuss/talk amongst themselves. What is the point of having feeder sessions if the points raised In the workshop sessions have to be literally rushed through at the end of a plenary…See More

IGF2012 - Time Travel , a look into the future

Its been one week since I left Baku and the IGF2012. I'm still surprised that it has taken me this long to catch up on work and everything else. You may ask what does time travel have to do with Baku and the IGF. For those of us who travelled from the Caribbean it certainty felt like it. Travel from the Caribbean to London on an eight hour flight and Move forward four hours in real time(London is four hours ahead of the Caribbean). Then another flight of eight hours to Baku and move forward…See More

IGF2012 Day 4 - African IGF

After a flurry of sessions over the last few days, I was looking for a session to attend on the last afternoon of the IGF.Grace Githaiga of the African IGF invitied me to attend the African IGF Session that was being held that day.What I experienced at that session was inspiring, challenging and reaffirming.The reports from the panelists covered the state of the IGF process from an African context and while panelists appealed for greater involvement of other African countries and National IGFs,…See More

IGF2012 Day 3 - Rethinking the relationship between the feeder session and main session

On the third day of IGF2012 I participated in a working session 52 on the internet of Humans as one of the rapporteurs.

As rapporteurs we were told that it was our responsibility to distill and capture the main points of the two hour workshp and prepare  a report to be presented to the main session…See More

IGF2012 Day 2

One of the issues I have with the IGF is that there are so many interesting workshops happening in parallel and it is physically impossible to attend all of them. Having said that, that in my view is also one of the impressive features of the IGF, the diversity of relevant issues that are being addressed simultaneously. It underscores the need for a multidisciplinary, multi dimensional approach to Internet Governance issues.My picks for today were Internet Governance and sustainable development…See More
