    • Abstract:
      The article focuses the inaugural meeting of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), held in Athens, Greece. The official agenda only listed four items: openness, security, diversity, and access. Unlike the preceding summit meetings where only government officials spoke with any authority and formal protocol ruled the sessions, at IGF, ministers of state not only shared the platform with leaders of industry and representatives from civil society, but they also took questions from anyone in the room.
