Introducing a WSIS guest blogger

by Maria from Geneva on December 11, 2003

Later on today, the magnificent Gus Hosein, will be logging in to CT and giving us his impressions of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).

Gus is a key figure in a global community of privacy activists – the people who say “huh? you mean what?!” to the proliferation of government initiatives that “seek to balance” the “dynamic equilibrium” between privacy and security in this post 9/11 world.

I know Gus from my time at LSE. Henry knows Gus from a book project in internet governance being organised by Ernest Wilson. I know Ernest Wilson from a conference organised by the 21st Century Trust. Eszter knows Gus too. How, we don’t know yet. Did somebody say something about networks?

Anyway, welcome to Gus. He’ll be blogging here over the next day or so with his thoughts on the WSIS.

Welcome, Gus. I know Gus via different things. We were both fellows of the SSRC Program on Information Technology and International Cooperation last summer (2002). We are also both members of the Stanhope Werkstätte. (Thanks to our friend Christian for getting us connected there.) Please say hi to Ernie Wilson for me as well.:) And if you run into the Israeli delegation, please say hi to Karine Barzilai-Nahon.:)
