Hi George,

I identify myself as someone from business and have contributed here already although I speak for myself only. 

As to the representatives issue for the business community I'd say we'll probably need to wait til Monday for an official reply from Ayesha or Joe. 

Personally speaking, I'm unhappy myself with the unbalanced composition and have made proposals within the business group for a more balanced representation. There was some discussion and some voting process that I'm sure will be explained soon to shed light on this particular outcome.

I'd like to understand the situation also.

1net was set up to be a true multi-stakeholder meeting place for Internet governance discussions.  AFAIK there isn't another one like it.  1net works if all constituencies (or whatever you want to call them) participate.  So far I've seen representatives of civil society causes and people from the Internet technical community make postings, but no one from business (I don't think we expected governments to engage at this level).  So I think that you are raising relevant questions, and I hope that the business sector engages soon.
