Ottawa Alternative Telcom Policy Forum

I had the pleasure of chairing all of the sessions of the alt.telecom policy forum held in Ottawa this past weekend.

It was a great meeting, and a multi-stakeholder meeting at that—having key people from Academia, civil society, Government, as well as the internet business sector. The conference proceedings were webcast and archived using KNET’s Breeze application.

Michael Lenczner, Alison Powell, Stephane Couture, Sascha Meinrath and Ross Rader blogged from the event. I do recommend reading their comments.

The timing of the event couldn’t have been better, coming days before the IGF. I will look for ways to bring ideas from the Ottawa event to Athens, and see what collaborations could be developed with key players such as DiploFoundation, ICANN and others.

So all in all a great event, one that I hope people reading this blog will look into.
