APC Annual Report 2003
, November 2004
The year 2003 was memorable for one particular process that galvanised APC’s efforts – the World Summit on the Information Society which took place in Geneva in December 2003. WSIS was a watershed in public participation as information and communications policy shifted from the obscure world of techno-jargon to be recognised as social policy that affects everyone. From APC’s perspective as a network of ‘social techies’ this was a major breakthrough.
