Watching NETmundial -- Blog posts to data-mining

Are you following the preparatory process for the upcoming NETmundial meeting in Brazil? It is a very interesting example of 'stakeholder' (attempted multistakeholder) interaction.

What we are proposing is a period of on line discussion, after which we will probably conduct some sort of on line straw poll to get a feeling for how people think about options emerging. So please comment and digest, and we will look forward to getting wide…
