It was originally mainly for CI's consumer group members, but it is
clear that it won't be useful unless it is open to others.  In the
longer term I need to look at spinning it off to a more broadly based
network, and making it much nicer like the infojustice-calendar one.  I
already put in place a simple Internet governance calendar system for
the IGC (http://www.igcaucus.org/calendar), but it hasn't been much used
and could also be wrapped into the above.  I am trying to get funding to
support the Best Bits network, mainly as a travel fund for events, but
some Web development work such as this will also be included.
