Interesting. Who owns / runs Nissaba.net? I could not find any information anywhere about the organization’s founders, directors or team members (except, after a bit of online digging, for one individual named Samantha Dickinson, an “internet governance consultant/writer” based in Australia who is publishing the summaries).
They are publishing high profile summaries on major policy issues – and they claim to have this “big idea”, yet the it looks like the (sic) “small team” repeatedly mentioned on Nissaba.net has chosen to operate behind the scenes? That does not make sense.
How do we know that their summary is a credible and trustworthy representation of the original (UN /ITU) documents?
Considering the targeted high-profile audience, there is risk of people downloading a document that has an embedded virus. This could be a massive social engineering / spear phishing vector.
I’m also curious how they got their “big idea” because it looks very familiar and the timing of Nissaba.net’s appearance is very strange to me as it curiously coincides with certain ongoing initiatives.
Anyone with insights / information / clarifications?
