I will be leaving tomorrow for Athens for the first meeting of the 
Internet Governance Forum, but I realise that most people who would be 
interested in attending aren't lucky enough to be able to do so. 
However, you can (and should) still participate, and here are some ways 
in which you can do so:

* First, find out about what the Internet Governance Forum is at
   its official Web site, http://www.intgovforum.org/, and the
   official site of its Athens meeting, http://www.igfgreece2006.gr/.

* Then visit the semi-official community site that Kieren McCarthy
   and I have put together at http://igf2006.info, which provides
   facilities such as chat, discussion fora, your own instant blog,
   which you can start typing into straight away, plus the ability
   to add comments to pages, add your own pages, edit the site's
   wiki, add Web links, and so on.  Webcasts will also be linked
   there once available.

* Then visit some of the blogs and commentary sites which will be
   monitored during the IGF meeting, including Kieren's at
   http://igf2006.info/igfblog and mine at http://igfwatch.org/.
   Add your own comments, or else post on your own blog (hopefully
   Kieren or I will see it and report it to the meeting, but you
   can email one of us about it to make sure).

* Also read what those attending in Athens had to say beforehand,
   by reading the synthesis paper by the IGF Secretariat at

Finally, if you have any particular issues or concerns that you want put 
across in person rather than remotely, I would be very happy to relay 
them to the meeting for you: just get in touch.
