São Paulo Remote Participation Website

30 November 2006

In a further attempt to improve outreach, participation and transparency, ICANN has built a remote participation website for its São Paulo meeting, which commences December 2, at http://sp.icann.org/.

The site is being run as a pilot with a view to making it a permanent feature of ICANN meetings in the future.

ICANN has commissioned Kieren McCarthy, a well-known journalist and ICANN observer, to develop the site, following his involvement in a similar site (http://igf2006.info) for the Internet Governance Forum in Athens last month.

We hope this website will assist participation by those at the meeting as well as those on the wider Internet who can't be physically present.

Feedback on the usefulness of the site and any suggestions for improvement is welcome.

For more information please visit the online participation site at: http://sp.icann.org/.
