e budgets in the 1970s and into the 1980s were robust; governments had bought into the multilateral aid program. &nbsp;I was fully involved in this technology transfer for 13 years as a UN Secretariat international civil servant; I worked in 35 countries directly and executed useful projects with my group in probably 40 others. &nbsp;<br><br>That ICT4D program continues to this day, but in a much abbreviated form, unfortunately, due to changes in funding patterns by donor countries. &nbsp;Looking back, and even at the time, those programs were generally well managed and the results support your point below; the donors got good value for their money.<br><br>My remarks should not be construed as anti-UN. &nbsp;The UN is a good institution that is dealing with difficult issues. &nbsp;However, I'm very conscious of the UN's ability to set up self perpetuating bureaucracies and then to use them to their advantage. &nbsp;You do remember when we cynically called GAID Sarbuland Khan's retirement program, and I think that we were right. &nbsp;I don't want the IGF to be anyone's retirement program.<br><br>Going back to the reason for this discussion, I hope that the end state of what is going on now is an extended IGF with more robust financial support from all sectors including the UN. &nbsp;But as others have pointed out, a multiplicity of donors helps to avoid capture by any one sector.<br><br>There would be advantages in maintaining some kind of UN link, but taking the IGF out from the umbrella of UN patronage. &nbsp;In particular, it would provide more freedom in deciding in which countries the IGF would be held. It would do away with the sham security system now being employed during the meetings, and it could provide more freedom to use funds in ways more effectively. &nbsp;One would have to balance this against the loss of convening power and diplomatic caché that the UN provides now.<br><br>I hope that this provides the balance that concerned you.<br><br>Speaking of balance, I saw your statement regarding the distribution of community informatics folks across developed ad developing countries, and the implication for the adequacy of representation from the "civil society" sector &nbsp;It is pretty clear to me that the development side of "the rest of us" is poorly represented at the expense of professional civil society organizations, but I don't know how to right it. &nbsp;That's a larger problem.<br><br>Regards,<br><br>George &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br><br>On Sep 2, 2014, at 1:03 PM, michael gurstein &lt;<a href="mailto:gurstein@gmail.com">gurstein@gmail.com</a>&gt; wrote:<br><br><blockquote type="cite">A minor correction...<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite"><br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">George, neither the UN ICT Task Force, nor the GAID " spent millions of<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">dollars"... neither of them had any money of their own (nor any sort of<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">significant contributory budget--Sarbuland to the best of my knowledge<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">continued to receive his salary through his previous appointment elsewhere<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">in the Secretariat for example)... Lack of independent funding was one among<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">a huge number of other problems, and not to say that if they had had any<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">money it would have been well and usefully spent... &nbsp;but I completely agree<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">with you on the other part of your statement "by virtue of their existence,<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">they have pre-empted the center of discussion and have thereby prevented the<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">possible emergence of more innovative and useful." &nbsp;<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite"><br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">I think these comments should be balanced however, by noting that the (quite<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">limited) contribution of the UNDP, UNESCO and other of the specialized<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">agencies to ICT4D were for the most quite useful, reasonably well managed<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">and not particularly wasteful of their or anyone's money.<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite"><br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">M<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite"><br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">-----Original Message-----<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">From: <a href="mailto:bestbits-request@lists.bestbits.net">bestbits-request@lists.bestbits.net</a><br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">[mailto:bestbits-request@lists.bestbits.net] On Behalf Of George Sadowsky<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">Sent: Tuesday, September 02, 2014 8:54 AM<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">To: Nick Ashton-Hart<br></blockquote><blockquote type="cite">Cc: manning bill; 1Net List; Erika Mann; Bes
