[discuss] Full Transparency of the Community Informatics Community

I would like to draw the attention of 1net and others to the full 12 year
history and transparency (and depth, breadth and scope) of the Community
Informatics community and perhaps of particular interest, the most recent
processes for consensus agreement on the Community Informatics Declaration
and the development of our NomCom process.

I stand to be corrected, but I believe that none of the other current
participants in either the IG CS (such as those represented by the CS: CC)
or the IG academic space (e.g. Giganet) have either the transparency (or,
with one exception, history) of our community although I understand that one
of these groups is currently scrambling to achieve this transparency perhaps
because of the light on this issue which the CI community is presenting.

Brazil. The following Release Statement and Final Report detail the work of
the NomCom.

Release Statement

The Final Report of the Community Informatics Nominating Committee for the
Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of the Internet Governance was
completed yesterday. (Copy Attached)


The Report details the selection process for nominees to the Global
Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of the Internet Governance (GMMFIG)
to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on April 23-24, 2014. The Meeting will focus
on crafting Internet governance principles and proposing a roadmap for the
further evolution of the Internet governance ecosystem. 


The Nominating Committee's (NomCom) charge was to recommend four candidates
to participate in shaping the GMMFIC's work. The Nominating Committee 's
five voting members were David Nemer, Parminder Jeet Singh, Brian Beaton,
Chris Zielinski, and Charles Dhewa. After completing a careful review of the
position requirements and candidates, the NomCom chose the following:


.         Multistakeholder High Level Committee - the nominee was Cristian
Berrio Zapata

.         Executive  Multistakeholder Committee - the nominee was Michael

.         1Net Academic Posts Steering Committee - the nominees were Doug
Schuler and Cristian Berrio Zapata


Having closely followed the organization of the upcoming meeting in Brazil,
the NomCom's members added a codicil to their report, recommending that
their selectees also be charged with interfacing with the 1Net, an entity
assisting with organizing the April 23-23 Meeting.


Details of the NomCom's work including process and candidate biographies can
be found in the attached report: Community Informatics Nominating Committee
