Dear Nick,
Dear 1net colleagues,

You will find attached to this note the letter from the technical community sent to Finland and Tunisia, the two co-facilitators of the consultation on the modalities of the overall WSIS Review.

  *   W3C
  *   ICANN
  *   ISOC
  *   IAB
  *   NRO
  *   ARIN

Subject: [discuss] Joint Industry Letter on the WSIS review modalities

Dear fellow /1net participants,

Attached please find the (lo-res) version of a joint statement sent to the co-facilitators of the General Assembly's negotiations on the modalities of the WSIS review. You'll notice that it has many common elements with the letters from civil society and the technical community. I'd like to thank Deborah Brown at Access for proposing that communities should get letters like this off, it was an excellent idea.

I hope many other sttakeholders will make congruent views known to those consultations. The WSIS review modalities are awfully important - and don't seem to get nearly the attention they deserve.
