Good morning 

I hope and trust that the US announcement on IANA and the High Level
Meeting in Brazil will not signal the end of the dialogue. I, although
with some background on Internet Governance, have found the dialogue, and
the contribution of some of our leading thinkers on IG matters, to be of
real utility. I even feel confident of explaining IANA down the pub!
