Internet Governance Forum

The establishment of Internet Governance Forum (IGF) by the United Nation (UN) is seen as an innovative new approach to global policy making. It offers a discussion space for multi-stakeholder and offer unique opportunity for bottom-up policy development related to the Internet by linking togethter Governement, Private Sector, NGO/INGOs, civil society, technical and academic community.

The third meeting of IGF is going to be held in Hyderabad from 3-6 December 2008. There are five main subjects of the IGF - access, openness, diversity, security and critical Internet resources - for the management and development of internet.

I think the internet should be left open and away from politics of the different countries, companies trying to change the world in their profit making ways. But that's just my thought.
