DiploFoundation had a dynamic presence at IGF 2010 in Vilnius, Lithuania
from September 14-17. Some 20 fellows, tutors, and staff were involved in
panels, remote participation, workshops, the Village Square, social
reporting, and other activities. Remote participation this year raised the
bar to new heights with over 600 individuals connecting, and 33 remote hubs
registered from all continents except Antarctica. Diplo online course
coordinator Ginger Paque spoke for the Civil Society Internet Governance
Caucus at the opening session.

Thousands of tweets, numerous blogs and commentaries are posted at

The Remote Participation Working Group on Remote Participation (RP) held a
dynamic discussion which brought out new policy and issue developments,
moving beyond RP as an application and technical resource, to a real
Internet governance policy forum with discussion of vocabulary,
definitions, and implications for access and inclusion. Watch for the
discussion on RP at Discuss.diplomacy.edu

The workshop on net neutrality was controversial in many ways, and the
follow-up discussion may be even more important than the workshop itself.
Two hours was just too short to discuss technical aspects, development and
user issues.
