You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat. - Albert Einstein

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
