I'm with Vanda on this.
I think that the location also suits the demographic of the
participants. However, with respect to opportunity, travel time and cost:
* Events such as like this have to be promoted more and the remote
participation options be more timely available (in spite of any
perceived risk to physical attendance), especially with webcast
archiving such as happens when ISOC / ISOC NY are tuned in and involved.
Due to Joly's post and magic, anyone, anywhere can be a part of the
South School on Internet Governance (SSIG). Of course, the notice came
the same day it started... not so hot for planning one's schedule, but
hey Joly archives!
Specific to some Caribbean territories, US airports are our exchange
point for reaching many Latin America destinations, and even some other
Caribbean destinations. Thus US based events tend to be a lot more
accessible and likely affordable.
Despite that it, would be lovely to have LAC specific locations for the
meetings. Clearly as it evolved SSIG has been doing that. I think they
have done a great job to build up to this their 8th event with such a
strong list of topics and presenters and I'm sure that they will evolve
to greater things. Maybe the important questions are:
1. How can I, you, we assist SSIG more?
2. How to bring a future SSIG to our territory?
3. How to bring our territory (with respect to participants) to a
4. How to we continue to let the power of the Internet end the tyranny
of travel, geography in participating in SSIG?
*DISCLOSURE:* I'm not affiliated with SSIG but I'm running a remote hub
for it from Barbados. I think it is a great event and from the time I
noticed it I wanted to expand the reach of the agenda to my country folk
(whoever chooses to turn up).
