    We should not forget organisational members, after all I am looking for them to elect me again to the board of trustees. ;-) ;-)

    I think the advisory council is working well. We still need to develop value propositions for new linds of organisations to join us and possibly develop models how organisaions can support both local chapters and ISOC at the same time.

    I would like to see ‘collective participation’ & ‘collaboration’ at a broader level. ISOC chapters & members should get connected through some means.

    We need to find ways to get participation from different sect of society. In the next decade the mantra should be ‘Internet-for-everybody’.

    . It has taken awhile for the telecom world to come to grips with IP as the key to convergence. However, we are still not quite there, and efforts to create walled gardens and closed networks will close the way for users from truly benefiting from the true value of the Internet. The coming together of the different worlds of telecom operators, broadcasters, Internet service providers, content providers, P2P networks providers, free municipal networks, etc provides unique challenges that we have never faced before. These are interesting times for ISOC and how it positions and focuses its activities over the next few years, will have great impacts to its usefulness and success in the years to come. I do hope to be given an opportunity to be a part of the organization as it holds its ground in this new communications world.
