During first day of EuroDIG they were faced lots of different topics, but there's one commont point that I would like to underline.

In the morning session we talked about European IG processes, that can be quite different from a country to another.
France started to think about IG before its existence, while Italy has its national IGF meeting only in 2008. In Russia it was hard to introduce IG discussions, while in Portugal there often are extra meetings because there is an huge interests from lots of sectors.

In the afternoon session we talked about which ways can be effective to make Internet free from illegal of dangerous contents; someone complained about bureaucracy and costs of legal steps, others think that only blocking contents is the right way to act.

What joined these different topics is: who should regulate Internet? If Internet belongs to the world, maybe not only government and important actors can bring ideas and suggest which are the best way to act. Citing Chris Wilkinson (ISOC), "police has lots of things more important to do!".
So, would improve the actual situation creating new extra-police organizations to protect our lives, expecially talking about native Internet users generation?
