Just briefly: Parminder, this is an odd observation as you had asked the
coordination group to select Louis in place of yourself (though I'm not
saying that Louis was selected for that reason).  Also, do note that
half of the coordination group members are from developing countries so
the desirability of developing country representation was certainly not
overlooked (by them, or by the rest of us).

As to Community Informatics, I've ceased engaging with Michael about
this.  As I had long respected him, his lack of compunction about
attacking colleagues and friends over this issue with repeated untruths
saddens me greatly (hint: his group wasn't ignored or excluded without
explanation, and neither is the coordination group the self-selected,
self-dealing cabal he claims).

Beyond this, Ian will soon be putting out a discussion paper from the
coordination group about its future and how representation within the
group can be broadened.
