Chat Log

00:11:52 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Loud and clear

00:11:53 Robert Guerra: :)

00:16:58 Dr.Nadia Khadam: unable to hear

00:17:35 Ben Wallis: Sounding good on the phone to me

00:22:31 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Lots of feedback

00:24:33 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Oh! Congrats Anja.

00:24:38 andersj: Congratulations, Anja!

00:31:41 Dustin Phillips: All documents for the meeting can be found on the meeting page:

00:49:39 Anja Gengo: Apologies, I will need to leave now. Thank you very much for inviting! 

00:55:19 Robert Guerra: hand up

01:04:12 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Puppies!

01:04:22 andersj: FYI, the work leaders did on doing the sorting of the ideas for IGF-USA last year was absolutely fabulous, and I have been using the list in my courses at Elon University in addition to using it in preparing our undergraduate team that attended Global IGF. It was very well done.

01:05:17 Joly MacFie: 5G and the digital divide

01:05:19 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Have to step out for 5 mins.

01:06:42 Joly MacFie:

01:06:46 Robert Guerra: Hot topics - Challenges of (emerging/new) technologies and nation state national security issues. Huawei  & 5G for instance

01:08:29 Robert Guerra: The lessons learned related to the impact of government shutdown on cyber security. It would be interesting to discuss the case study how a temp government withdrawl from a sector (ie. cyber security)

01:09:54 Robert Guerra: trust & security - how seen by different demographics: children, digital natives, aged, etc..

01:10:48 andersj: The Imagining the Internet interview team spoke more than 150 participants at IGF-Paris and their ideas might be the basis for thought on what to address at IGF-USA 2019. We asked “what are the biggest looming challenges,” “what are the most promising world-changing emerging technologies,” “What can we do to enhance global cooperation”?

01:11:32 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): I’m back  - apologies

01:16:45 Robert Guerra: hand up

01:20:11 mscade: I think that Janna has her hand up as well  Janna, can you speak up to ask for the floor. It is hard for Dustin to watch cat and also moderate.

01:20:59 andersj: Thanks, Marilyn, but my comments read OK in the chat box … as long as everyone sees them.

01:27:17 Robert Guerra: +1 to michael’s suggestion (to have remote organizers) involved in some capacity.

01:27:40 mscade: Not everyone is online do that is why I wanted Dustin to read out your comments. If you are only posting in the chat and want to be sure that you are heard, someone needs to read out your comments. Looking around , over 60 % in the room aren’t online or are not following the Chat/not a criticism, but just an observation.  I will ask Dustin if it is possible to post the chat afterward so that we don’t miss hearing from those of you online.

01:29:49 andersj: Shane and Marilyn are correct that the process should be made as efficient and early as possible while assuring quality and fair representation.

01:40:22 Joly MacFie: gotta jet, sorry

01:41:13 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Can you read out the locations - we can’t see the map

01:41:19 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Hope you’ll be hitting SF again.

01:45:56 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): thanks

01:47:27 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): clap clap!

01:47:30 andersj: Thanks, Shane!

01:47:31 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): thank you for your efforts.

01:54:37 mscade: We have done different approaches in the past, ranging from workshops that the youth self organized, with a few others acting as advisors.  I can also share the topics that have been highlighted by the Youth Initiatives. Anja and I are engaging with them on and off.

01:58:21 mscade: I’ll work on a short description of what we did in the past, which included having a youth speaker on main sessions, separate workshops, including youth in other workshops, etc.

01:59:44 Susannah Gray (SF Bay ISOC): Thanks!

02:00:03 Dustin Phillips:
