As a follow-up to my response to Adam re: the interests of the Community Informatics community, I draw your attention to the just published issue of the Journal of Community Informatics as below... 

And no, there are no discussions of "root zones", "IPv6", IAB, ICANN or even "enhanced cooperation" etc. etc. Just discussions/research of interest to those on the Internet margins (and others)--in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, rural USA, urban Sweden, Brazilian activists, Australian aboriginal story tellers and concerning issues of the Digital Divide, building social and human capital via the Internet, citizenship in an Internet era, ICTs and ageing, ICTs and youth.

Are those subjects for discussion (or perhaps better, subjects appropriate to "be bridged") into a meeting on "the Future of Internet Governance" and are the voices being reflected in those papers saying things useful to be heard at this meeting... I leave it to you folks and perhaps better to the wider audience of global Internet users and non-users to decide.

And quite honestly I'm getting tired of this discussion as I'm sure you folks are getting tired of my interventions.  As I'm still waiting for an "official" or even any response from 1net I'll be turning my attention to other things.  

If there is no response and the illegitimate and exclusionary processes are allowed to continue and the self-appointed and self-annointed are empowered to exclusively shape the agenda and discussion of this meeting we all will suffer the consequences. These matters and the future of the Internet are too important to be left. A multistakeholderism that denies the opportunity for effective diversity and refuses to accommodate the voices and interests of the marginalized is not multistakeholderism it is tyranny and a fundamental denial of democracy.
