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.
This morning I strained a ligament and in pain wen to the UK IGF. Said a few words here:
livestream here: multistakeholderism as a religion, pancea or a smoke-screen? By mistake on few occassions I said *all multistakeholders* instead of all stakeholders. I see myself, most of the time* as a multistakeholder not as a stakeholder or an interested party - I have many concerns and yes it's somewhat artificial separation, yet, however artificial, it's a way for civil society and experts to get more voice in some IG decision-making processes. :-). Internet Schizophrenia at its best, multiple actors wearing multiple hats.
