Just a quick pointer to an interesting Working Draft from the IETF on
Remote Participation:


As IETF highlight, and as is mirrored by my experience last week trying to
remote participate in the Internet Governance Forum, which has also worked
hard to support remote panelists and participation, the right mix of tools
and practices to support remote participation in face-to-face meetings, and
effective cross-platform online-only meetings, currently still seem
somewhat elusive.

There has been the suggestion in past Internet Governance Forum discussions
on Remote Participation that it would be good to have a shared project
between a number of conferences / fora which have a governance function to
develop shared tools, principles and guidance for e-Participation in
meetings - but as yet nothing has come of this. Perhaps it's something that
could have connections to the eGov meeting.

All the best
