No, seriously! I am attending the IGF 2014 online -- with an 8 hour time difference. That's hard enough to start with. Fortunately, I'm in good company, with the Nepad/Diplo Internet governance in Africa: an introduction participants, who are attending and discussing sessions and issues through the the Africa Virtual Remote Hub. They are doing a great job!
Back to the schizophrenia: so, I am online in Istanbul, online in the Africa Virtual Remote Hub, attending my home and family in Wisconsin... that's two and a half personas. But the good news/bad news of remote participation is that we can be in more than one session at a time, and like a child faced with a choice of ice cream flavors, I cannot always make up my mind. Too much of a good thing? I suspect there are people sitting in sessions in Istanbul, while attending another session remotely, so I do not have a monopoly on schizophrenia...
How is your IGF 2014 going? What are the highlights (and lowlights)? Post to us! We don't want to be alone with our computers....
