It was like a dream come true…… the 6th Internet Governance Forum (IGF11) was held in my home town, Nairobi!
The relaxed space that is the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) facilities, offered speakers and participants a serene environment for rather hurried discussions on access, development, freedoms and innovation at time-limited…Continue
Serendipity – happy accident – seems to be governing my life at the moment. Last week I was asking for opinions about how to deal with “Facebook” at work. The responses I received generally agreed with the majority CARIBnog position - to block the site/s. I still have questions, one of the first ones being – how does the network manager decide which sites to block? What constitutes “improper use of bandwidth (and time)”?
This morning in my mail was the latest post from John…Continue
Blocking porn content has been on the agenda of public institutes dealing with Internet policy and regulations subjects. Child Online Protection (COP) is one specific terminology addressing this particular content type since children around the globe are the most vulnerable segment of a society in terms of threats / harm posed by porn content. Although, COP is not limited to safeguarding kids from porn content only, it includes a broader issues framework.
Blocking content is not an…Continue

One of the main discussion issues - at the stage as well as in corridors - of the recent IGF meeting in Nairobi was the future of IGF and multistakeholder concept. While there several other places where the future of IGF will impacted from (UN through the new chief coordinator of IGF Secretariat, CSTD through suggested reforms of IGF), the IGF itself is certainly the best place to discuss its own future, right?
Impressions taken from various participants about what works and…Continue

I enjoy the way things manage to line themselves up beside one another. I expect this comes from my other life as a teacher of literature. From EM Forster's novel Howards End perhaps and the ideas of one of his characters : "Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. … Live in fragments no longer. Only connect...."
Checking to get the quotation correct I found this article “ “Only Connect"--E. M. Forster In An Age…Continue
Reposted from the UK IGF blog.
The challenge faced by the Internet Governance Forum is a big one: to convene open multi-stakeholder dialogue on extremely diverse Internet issues in order to help shape global Internet policy and practice.

I have come to the scary conclusion that there are currently no plans for migrating to IPv6. While most all IG practitioners will agree that IPv6 is the way to go in terms of the development of the Internet. However, it is obvious that despite the constant discussion within ARIN, APNIC, AFRINIC, LACNIC, RIPE NCC, ITU, IGF and the plethora of other Internet governance forums, there is no definitive plan or obvious timelines for this migration. Service providers are not leading the charge…Continue
