We already heard Sally, Leslie, and Andrea's reflections on the Plenipot at
the ISOC-DC debrief <http://isoc-ny.org/p2/7227> a month back. Now, Danny
Sepulveda is defining it as win for those who were concerned about ITU
mission creep in what he terms
<https://openinternet.state.gov/message-ambassador-sepulveda/>  "the Busan
Consensus" -   *"In Busan, we established a basis and process that enables
the ITU to work within its mandate to promote global connectivity while
leaving decisions about how people use that connectivity to more
appropriate institutions and deliberations."   *This will be the focus of
today's discussion.

For a wider overview of what went down in Busan read this report
ISOC-NY's own Avri Doria.
