I'll do something that seems odd to me and nominate myself. I'm the
Editor of the Linux Gazette and A42.com, as well as a few other
things... and I have been participating in various email lists related
to the WSIS/WGIG for some time. I'm pretty well read on all of the
topics at hand, and I'm aware of other things that may happen. I think a
few of you know me from other lists.

For telecenters, the stakeholders are the community - which really
should be what this is about. I don't know that I'm better or worse than
anyone else, but I'm not seeing a rush for nominations - and I honestly
believe that someone should go to represent the Telecentres perspective
at the WGIG.
