Biodiversity and Internet Governance

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!

The new system of governance?

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.
