Greetings IETF and WWW-TALK,

Enclosed is an announcement about an online event that should be of 
interest.  It covers both universal access to the Internet and what 
the "universal Internet" might be like.  In particular we are looking 
for a few technical experts who can help explain some of the policy 
choices the standards community is facing as it relates to our four 
event themes of Universal E-mail, Universal Internet, Networking 
Communities, and Private and Public Markets Connect.

Please pass this on to others you think might be interested.  Thanks.

Steven Clift
