A few impressions from the IEEE Summit on Internet Governance. Simon Pugh attended as photographer and published more impressions at Flickr.
Videos of the event are available at the website. Twitter has the event under #ieeeigsummit.
At the end of the panel on the future of Internet Governance, asked for a perspective, Mark Raymond summed up the perspective ahead: “A long string of innovative and surprising ways to fail.”. Since Internet with all it’s cultural and societal relevance is considerably young, that statement nails the situation and work to be done ahead. And it underlines the importance of bringing together policy makers with academia and industry, to have an unbiased, open discussion. IEEE is the right platform to add unbiased, technical expertise to such discussions.
