    1. as the Federal Government, aim to coordinate our international digital policy even more closely with our partners

      Continuation of block-thinking, divides and paralysis.

    2. value-based technology partnerships

      This says it all about partnerships. Either you are like-minded and democratic, or, partnerships will be limited.

    3. same time, we are encouraging the commitment and representation of like-minded partner countries of the Global South in relevant Internet governance forums as well as the reciprocal capacity building and expansion

      More participation and capacity building. BUT, for like-minded.

    4. We use digitalization to tackle global challenges

      Although the layout masks it a bit, much more attention and space were given to resilience than to sustainability.

    5. The high complexity of global value and supply chains requires close collaboration and specialization at EU level and with partners and allies worldwide


    6. EU to connect additional partners to existing infrastructures and make space-based data, services and products accessible to them.

      EU Global Gateways?

    7. We reject any political influence that runs counter to our values

      I though standards were a technical-only area! Just being ironic...

    8. We also take into account at all times the increasing security and defence policy dimensions of data policy

      Securitization of data flows. ||MariliaM||

    9. The deteriorating geopolitical environment increases the urgency of constantly considering also other dimensions, particularly security and defence policy, when dealing with regulatory issue

      This creates the link to coordinate with EU Economic security strategy, and with EU and German China strategies.

    1. Andrew Ng: ‘Do we think the world is better off with more or less intelligence?’

      A very lucid interview. He highlights the importance of open source AI, the danger of regulating LLM as opposed to applications, the negative lobby of most big tech, and the need to focus on good regulation targeting the problems of today, not speculating about extinction, etc. ||JovanK|| and ||sorina||

    1. Annex: Technical Discussion of Internet Governance Sanction Measures

      This is the best part of this document. Very good explanation and reasoning.

    2. disallowance of sanctioned personnel from participation in Internet governance, policymaking, or standardization proceedings.

      This is very interesting. For example, the CoE suspended Russia. However, the difference is that what russia is doing goes against the core mandate of CoE. I wonder how a discussion on suspending Russia/Russia sanctioned personel from the ITU or ISO would go. ||sorina||

    3. open

      What is open is not necessarily participatory as we know well.

    4. minimal,

      Sounds like a very exclusive club :)

    5. new

      Not hooked to the UN?

    6. call us to action in defense of society,

      Which society? The society under attack? The society of humankind (in a Kantian sense) which does not exist yet? The society of states? The society composed by the actors that are part of this so called "Internet commuinity'?

    7. self-interest of our community’s own direct constituents;

      Is this a message to ICANN?

    8. eliberate and make decisions in the face of humanitarian crises

      Facilitate or make decisions? Is it the role of the Internet community to also decide that a crisis characterises a humanitarian crisis? Would they have the capacity to act ad hoc, or when provoked by other actors with the capacity to acknowledge a crisis as humanitarian?

    9. nternet community

      Who or what is this?

    10. has not yet established a process dedicated to this task.

      Let's name one multistakeholder decision-making process in a global scale. Net Mundial? ICANN (privately controled) multistakeholder model? If we do not have one active process to decide on simpler things in a MS way, how can we expect to create one to deal with such controversial and politically sensitive issues?

    11. ransition from national to multistakeholder governance.

      I could contest the narrative of this transition. It seems to me that Internet governance is making its way back. The first IG norms were not created by states. States adopted a hands-off approach. After years of enthusiam with multistakeholderism, there is a view that the state needs to play a much bigger role, not only on regulation (ex. platforms) but also asserting its sovereignty.

    12. facilitate

      Would the mechanism faciliatte (in the sense of providing advice) or actually decide?

    13. anctions

      It really bothers me to associate 'multistakeholder' and 'sanctions'. I know that the word has been used largely lately, but originally sanctions imply authority. What is the source of authority? I am not yet even going on the mine field of asking what the legitimacy is...

    14. The Hague

      It would be interesting to know if an organization sponsored this initiative, bringing this actors together. Who had the convening power? Is this a spin-off from the GCSC? Certainly, the signatures would indicate so.

    1. This is your brain on Zoom

      Information we mostly know, but good to tackle stress and address issues such as gender. Useful to corroborate some of our practices (breaks, "relaxed" networking opportunities).

    1. Much of the other work involves setting standards for datasets that are not uniform between different entities and provinces. This would allow them to be more easily used on new data exchanges such as the one recently launched in Beijing that aims to allow companies to trade anonymous proprietary data -- effectively a pilot for a national data trading system

      Rules for the governance of data is a key motivation of the Chinese government crackdown on companies. While proposals to nationalise companies' datasets have met criticism, an idea that is gaining traction is the possibility to establish a trading system for data between companies. ||JovanK||
