[Wgco] [IGFmaglist] LET'S DISCUSS & MOVE FORWARD...

Wed Jun 29 10:40:22 EDT 2016
Hello again, everyone, and thank you for your comments and support. I know
outreach and access are very important for everyone.
Because the timeline is so short, and as Marilyn notes, a group endorsement
would require negotiating and drafting, I am happy to submit my input as an
individual on Friday, so it does not commit anyone else who might feel
pressured by the short drafting/consensus process.
I'm happy to add co-signers, if anyone writes me a private email.
Segun, perhaps we can do a more substantial document as proposed by
Marilyn, as part of the WG, and send it later as a contribution?
*Upcoming online courses: *Humanitarian Diplomacy, 21st Century Diplomacy,
Diplomatic Law: Privileges and Immunities, Internet Technology and Policy:
Challenges and Solutions, Multilateral Diplomacy.
