I have followed the IGC list almost since its inception and was a frequent contributor in its early days.  

I programmed my first computer in 1957, and since then I've been more or less involved in computing and networking, economics and economic and social development  since then. Very briefly, in the 1950s I was a mathematician; in the 1960s I was involved in social science research computing, income redistribution and poverty elimination programs; in the 1970s and early 1980s I worked for the United Nations doing transfer of computer technology to about 40-40 developing countries, much of it in in Africa and China; in the 1980s and 1990s I directed computing and networking in research universities in the U.S.; in the 1990s I directed ISOCs developing country network training workshops; and in the 2000s I managed Internet policy projects in 15-16 countries in transition, including most of the former Soviet Union.   I participated in both WSIS conferences and was an adviser to the Chair of the IGF/MAG for the first five years of the IGF.   There's more detail at georgesadowsky.org <http://georgesadowsky.org/>. 

Since 2009 I've been a member of the ISOC Board; my term ends at the end of 2018.  My interest in civil society issues is high, but I have been substantially turned off by the the absolutist ideology and single issue orientation of many of its members and the non-productive and ugly fights that came to dominate this list.
