Stanford University's Center for Internet and Society and Harvard's
Berkman Center for Internet and Society have launched a Web site
(http://www.NetDialogue.org) to report Internet-related decisions by
international organizations, point to other useful resources, and
provide a forum for discussion on individual initiatives.
The announcement coincides with this week's meeting of the United
Nations Working Group on Internet Governance which is trying to come up
with recommendations on how international Internet governance is
defined, what topics it includes, and how decisions should be made.
By consolidating information in one place, the site should spare people
from having to sift through thousands of pages on sites of
international organizations, and should enable them to appreciate the
extent of Net governance, Stanford says. Net Dialogue is intended for
the benefit of people in government, business, non-profits,
international organizations, the media and the public at large.
