What Scot Robinson says is acceptable. We (from MSSRF) will bring a
grassroots worker to the Tunis meeting.

Telecentres list colleagues:

Given recent comments by Don, Florence, Arun and others before, plus
the fact there is such a wealth of experience concerning the real work of
Telecentres on this list, I suggest one of the main things that is lacking 
within WSIS is the voice of the grassroots with most of those participating 
speaking for other people's experiences rather than from their own.  

Therefore, may I suggest that we adopt as a rule that our representation 
in WSIS II consist of those with direct and on-going experience of the real 
activity of Telecentres in a Development context (which could include both 
in LDC's and in Development contexts within Developed Countries.

We seem to have a wealth of such talent on this list and by choosing this
route we can defuse some of the issues linked to "representation".
