(Warning: high risk of targeted Social Engineering Virus!) Fwd: [Internet Policy] A summary of the report of the UN High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation

Hi Patrick,

I found the report on a reputable Internet Policy list, read it and
shared it on the group. There is nothing sinister about it other than
the fact that the authors wanted to share knowledge about a subject
they have been following closely. Too much analysis results in
paralysis.

Regards
