Subject: Fwd: [discuss] Report from the BR meeting local organizing group -
Dec 2013
To: "Carlos A. Afonso" <ca at cafonso.ca>


thank you for posting the LOG meeting summary.  8. Expected outcome
would help to define the objective of Brazil Meeting along Brazil
President's speech at UNGA with the five points, and Montevideo
Statement/1net. Hope we could define the objective of Brazil Meeting soon.
Then, we could come up with the meeting agenda next.

i would like to have the following items in the meeting objective;

1. "Working" definition of multistakeholder
       - may include "multistakeholderism" as it appear occasionally.
       - may append pending issues since we could not come up
         with a stable document in one meeting.

2. Revisit of "IG Models"
       - in the last ~8 years, the Internet has grown from one billion
users to
         ~3 billion users now. it may be a good time to revisit the
Internet which
         is being gloablized now with good consideration of the new
         users as we would have 5 billion users by the end of this decade.
       - with WGIG's report and 8 year's of IGF among others, it may be
         good time to revisit the Internet Governance (models) now.

hope we could come up with a productive meeting in Brazil next april, and
hope the Brazil meeting with its preparation process to compliment IGF.
