The first session of this is just finishing. High level could be
interpreted to mean starchy wordiness, but there are nuggets to be found.
Probably the best way to digest is to read the transcripts, which I will
upload to the archive in short order. Spicing up proceedings is the
inclusion of representatives from Cambodia and iran. ISOC is represented by
Trustee Olga Cavalli, and USA by our FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel.
