We can feel confortable, the Brazil meeting will be about a nice cup 
of tea, or a mug of cofee. It will only include comments on not a 
single topic.

At last we know why some people on this list are going to spend in 
T&L to&in Sao Paulo (just after Singapore) much more money than 
needed by a FLOSS group to upgrade the Internet: this is NOT for 
something on the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summit_%28disambiguation%29 list.

In terms of surveillance; nominees for the Sao Paulo award are:

- ICANN for WhoIs
- ??? for Snowdenia
- IANA for "The Unique Authoritative Root" (Special April 1st Prize & 
30th Anniversary)
