There is an artist who can rent out whole of her body including her ovaries, but there is no view of that rental taking place. A n upgraded Jennycamm, but the 3d printer vagina selfie is something different
Based on the number of topics to be discussed in this draft program especially those such as Net Neutrality that weren't resolved at the NetMundial 2014, makes the 9th IGF potentially the most vibrant IGF so far.
Sub-themes agreed by the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group: Enabling Access, Content Creation, Disseminatin and Use, Internet as an Engine for Growth and Development, IGF and the Future of the Internet Ecosystem, Enhancing Digital Trust, Internet and Human Rights, Critical Internet Resources are not much of a surprise...
But the IANA stewardship transition, WSIS 10+, French GAC person leaving ICANN, the French-German alliance the derailed trust post the Snowden revellations will keep the focus on the need to revisit they way the Internet is governed and the overall awareness of bottom up multistkeholder approach outside the small 2000 people circles.
As usual - coming from those who know, this is a good term.
Yesterday at the IETF 90 reception I had an interesting conversation about Net Neutrality and the future of the TV, asynchronous networks and why we should not regulate. Hollywood and Disney trying to eat Verizon out for lunch, so that all US consumers can watch their series or movies from NetFlix. I know better to know that it's not that black and white and stand for the Internet users and content generators.Still this requires a longer post.
Yesterday after drinks at St Katherine's docks and dinner at the Fish! restaurant at Borough Market, a walk to Shoreditch took me to the Rivington Bar and Grill for "Some like it hot" house B*** Mary cocktail.
It had wasabi, mustard, cayenne pepper, crushed chillies from Mexico and Thailand and overall it was really spicey. It came with a chaser of milk with it. Necessary. Now on my way to Terminal 5 and the IETF meeting @Toronto for few days and maybe few summer cocktails at the Fairmont.
Feels like a crime. Digital Fabrication? Instead of Barcelona and Budapest Kitchen or the CDT Summer School on IG, I'm off to Bath to ponder about trust and accountability ( new word for trust?) in Internet governance institutions. EU's PoV on ICANN's accountability seems to revolve around globalisation. At least they got it right, it's not about internationalisation.
