in Marrakesh, the Cross Community Engagement Group on Internet
Governance discussed its future with the Board Working Group on Internet
Governance. The decision was to use the Engagement Group as a platform
for sharing information about Internet Governance.
We already do that using email. Unfortunately, there are an increasing
number of parallel tracks and we often drop the ball, or lose a track
My enquiry is as follows: the Engagement Group on Internet Governance
has a LOT of different tracks that are being followed, from IGF, to
CSTD, UN General Assembly, ITU, WTO, etc. etc.
So many tracks, that sometimes the history of what is happening in these
global conferences is being lost - there are just too many threads.
We've tried putting the threads on WIKI pages, but we are faced with two
1. many people in the working group are not versed in editing WIKIs.
2. staff does not have time to update WIKIs given the multiplication of
threads. We do not have a "curator" to make sense of the avalanche of
information that's coming our way.
As a result, what I wanted to ask you is whether you can recommend any
tool that would help with our ability to track several threads and make
these easily accessible to participants, including historical
perspectives, without creating an undue amount of work for ourselves.
Our problem is basically one of Knowledge Management.
