As many of you know, plans for the Best Bits meeting came together this
year, following on from an informal meeting at the Asia-Pacific Regional
IGF (the background to which is at

I have been shepherding the process along since then, but since Best
Bits has come together spontaneously, it is not something for which
there is any allowance of time or budget in my organisational workplan -
hence, I would appreciate some help from you.

Here are the most important areas where help is still needed:

  * Making a proper website for the event to replace the Etherpad page
    (, including a confirmation of
    registration form so that we can finalise our numbers.
  * Arranging web conference and other remote participation options.  A
    simple solution would be to utilise, but a
    web-connected camera also needs to be arranged.
  * Arranging a press conference for the Sunday afternoon.  This
    requires someone with PR experience who can liaise with the press
    office at the IGF.
  * Providing background papers for distribution to the participants
    ahead of the meeting.  These are due to be provided to Andrew
    Puddephatt by Friday 19 October at the latest.

For those of you who have supported the idea of Best Bits, please go
that step further and also set aside some of your time to help in
whichever of these areas you can.  We now only have a month to go!

Additionally, I am going to start two threads in which discussions about
the two output documents planned for the meeting can take place.  So
your participation in those threads will also be appreciated.
