Call for MAG nominations and Diplo community involvement

Dear friends and colleagues,



I wish you all a healthy and happy 2013, full of hope and the energy and inspiration to engage in Internet governance (IG).

Many questions have been raised, few have been answered.

Have you managed to connect to the IGF 2012 meetings in Baku?



We will discuss the realities and principles of remote/online/e-participation in Workshop 52 on Day 4 of the IGF, Friday, 9 November,…
