Seiiti has given me the impression (I wonder how? ;-) ) that he likes odd ideas. This is a VERY odd idea that has just popped up out of a skype with Ginger, and the proofreading of my husband’s paper on Biodiversity – WHICH HAS TO BE SUBMITTED TOMORROW!
From my perspective the most urgent issue about Internet Governance is that, for most of the people of the world whose lives will be affected by it to a greater or lesser extent, it is simply a non-issue – don’t know, don’t care,… Continue

I would like to tell you a story.
Once upon a time, a very long time ago, when I was just a little girl and the internet hadn’t been invented yet, my friend Michael and I were fascinated by the idea of space.
