Hi! John,

I wish an Happy New Year to all. I will paraphrase Bob Kahn here: no 
matter what you do, any group in the world (what RFC 6852 calls a 
"global community") has now the ability to set its own rules 
internally. It's not a question of technical issues, It's just with 
us. That same RFC6852 has acknowldged that the economies that may 
result from these rules will guide the technology development. This 
definitly spells out how the political/technological/societal/general 
Internet (and whole digital) governance is to work and extend: 
through MS dialog, group coalitions, individual decisions.

We will see if Sao Paulo turrns out being a one group coalition 
meeting or a multi-group (possibly conflicting) gathering. In both 
cases it will have been an interesting and friendly (networking) experience.

Best to you and familly.
