I, for one, am very glad to hear that. :-) I remember seeing you talking 
about your participation in the Declaration drafting process at the 
Mauritius ICT Stakeholders meeting (not sure if you remember, but we met 
briefly this July), and I'm confident you'll be a great advocate for the 
work of this group in the govt drafting sessions.

At some point in the near future, it might be a useful exercise for us 
to map out our group's membership beyond geographic representation, but 
also by sector. We're mostly civil society reps, but we have numerous 
friends from governments, UN agencies, donors and the private sector 
participating. As we all know, it will take a concerted effort by those 
of us representing each of these sectors to get any of ideas put into 
future documents to be drafted for adoption at WSIS, for none of us 
could do it alone....
