I proposed several times to the 1NET Co Com that 1NET explore serving as a more open multistakeholder vehicle for connecting people to the NETmundial Initiative.  Several members expressed support for that, but since how the NMI will evolve remains very unclear it’s hard to know ex ante how this could work.  I made the same suggestion to Fadi in London, didn’t get much reaction.

As I understand the basic idea, NMI will have a six month launch managed by WEF but the hope would be that this leads to something broader and more inclusive in a second phase.  Not how I would have done it, but that said I wouldn’t assume before the fact that the second phase will not come.  We have to see for starters how the conversation goes 28 August and what is possible…
