I may as well throw my hat into the ring then.

Some of you met me in Athens.  I have been involved in IG since joining 
the boards of ISOC-AU in 2001 and the Western Australian Internet 
Association in 2000 (though I don't toe the ISOC party line on the IGF).

I also chair a co-regulatory taskforce that drafted the Australian 
Internet Industry Spam Code last year, since registered with the 
Australian Communications and Media Authority.

I have completed four chapters of a PhD thesis on the IGF which is at 
http://www.malcolm.id.au/thesis/, and before that I was a self-employed 
specialist IT lawyer and IT consultant.  I'm managing another IT 
business on a part-time basis while I'm studying.

I am about to launch, with some other interested parties, an Online 
Collaboration Dynamic Coalition, and have just finished off a draft Web 
site for it at http://igf2006.info/wiki/IGF-OCDC.  I also run the 
http://igfwatch.org/ site.

I've previously been on the committees of some other civil society 
Internet organisations including the Australian Public Access Network 
Association and Electronic Frontiers Australia, as well some more 
general IT associations such as the Society of Linux Professionals WA 
and the WA Society for Computers and the Law.

Off the top of my head, a few of my beliefs are:

* "Governments will never agree to it" is no excuse
* DNS is not the most important IG issue
* Transnational public policy issues are no longer the sole province
   of governments
* Process is key, because it shapes expectations and power relations
* A key factor in making the IGF more accessible is to make online
   participation equivalent to attendance in person
* The structure of an Internet governance organisation should reflect
   the cultural values of the Internet

My full resume is at

anyone has any questions feel free to ask me.
