In the same year that World Wide Web celebrates 25 years, Brazil hosted NETmundial – Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance. The meeting was a partnership between the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br) and /1Net, a forum that gathers international entities of the various stakeholders involved with Internet governance. This meeting focused on the elaboration of principles of Internet governance and the proposal for a roadmap for future development of this ecosystem. The goal was to consolidate proposals based on these two topics.

NETmundial: the beginning of a process.
keynote by Tim Berners-Lee at netmundial april 2014:
1:00 – let’s think about the planet as a whole. …1:01 – we need internet government that allows each community to bring particular strengths to the table but that doesn’t allow any one of them to elevate it’s own interest above the public good1:05 – principals of human rights on the web are new – but they are not globally accepted..the web we will have in another 25 yrs time is not clear – but it is exactly up to us… that’s why i’m asking.. everyone .. to go and think about what you want and to find some global magna carta for the internetTim’s part ends at 1:07
august 2014 (steering committee formed after brazil netmundial):
1:00 – berkman center – looking into multi-stake holder governance model..?several have said – we are overconstructing this initiative – ..so what is feasible.. igf (internet governance forum) and un, bring 10 of 50 big companies to igfday 0 – day long on netmundial1:08 – we are not starting from ground 0 – this is work that has been made by 1000s of people over the last year.
beyond that no?
not understanding this..
is this not too much ness?
1:11 – we need a more institutionalized approach.. how do you build a distributed model…? work by a lot of hard work by people of good will (can’t assume this results in best – if those people aren’t detoxed)
keep asking questions that are drowning in our old ways.. perhaps we need more trust in uncertainty – in stigmergy – sensing too much control here…
1:15 – we say these people in davos are elite and are exclusive – if we say that – we are too
99 and 1 ness
1:16 – let’s go explore.. if we act like govt’s.. why .. we already have that1:18 – we ought to have all this subject to comment – what do people think… ought to come next after brazil netmundial..
too big and too small – so let’s use tech as it wants to be used – and facilitate/ground the chaos of people set free – this process you are trying to accomplish – with this conversation – can now be going on 24/7 with 7 billion plus people…. so let’s do that.
1:23 – shape and counsel some consultations? – incubational platform.. ?1:25 – we need a diverse group of senior people? –1:29 – what is our homework..?
perhaps this is clear (muck) evidence that what we need is for all these people (and all the people of the world) to be free to their useful preoccupation. tech is allowing us today – to allow for all of us to be usefully/happily preoccupied – with the thing we can’t not do – and yet at each other’s beck and call. which frees us to stigmergy/self-organizing ness. which frees us to no prep.
