[I-coordination] What is 1net to me?

There is no obvious vehicle for the academic community but as the Chair of the Steering Committee of GigaNet (Global Internet Governance Academic Network) I will send out a call for volunteers. This group of about 300 is quite diverse internationally and its members are interested in and have special expertise in IG, but would make no claim to represent "academia" as a whole. However, presumably one would want academics to be familiar with IG issues and problems.

So far only Business has provided names. While the dead line proposed is pasted now, we know that some other groups are working to come up with names. I want to believe that this group will not try to impose who each stakeholder group will appoint, by adhering to MSH, each of them should find who should/could represent them better: new or old to the system is up to each group. 

(per Adiel) -> "So far only Business has provided names."

Could the other stakeholder groups on the mailing list please identify if they are working on identifying names for the 1net steering committee?  I am aware that Civil Society is working on such from the attached email from Sala, but do not know about the Technical or Academic communities...

             to the 1net effort)

>> Jordan, I'm fully with you on the steering committee and I think we need to move on this quickly. There was a general agreement to have a steering committee composed of 5 reps from each group (Business, Civil Society, Technical, Academic). It will be good if each group starts identifying their reps. Can we give ourselves up to one week to set this up? Also agree with Jordan that even if at the beginning everything is not perfect, at least it will help us move quickly and more efficiently on some aspects of the discussion.
