Greetings from the Australian National University 'remote hub' in 
Canberra for the United Nations Internet Governance Forum.
The IGF Meeting is being held in Nairobi, Kenya, on the theme 'Internet 
as a catalyst for change: access, development, freedoms and innovation'. 
Currently Vint Cerf, is discussing human rights on the Internet with 
several others. There is a Live Webcast, along with a live text 
transcript: http://webcast.igf.or.ke

One amusing aspect that a UK representative claimed that recent riots in 
the UK were just criminal activity, not political. I expect that any 
government would make the same claim. ;-)
