Michael Gurstein has penned this interesting analysis Networking the Networked/Closing the Loop: Some Notes on WSIS II which is available on the archives of the incom-l mailing list. Prof Gurstein, who specialises in community based technology applications, raises critical questions about the "networking opportunities" thrown up by
the WSIS at Tunis.

He asks: "Did they (those attending the event) perhaps extend their practical networks from people like themselves-youngish, brightish, well-groomed and well-educated, clearly the winners in the Information Society sweepstakes-to perhaps the less stylish, those who fumble with their cell phones or can't speak knowledgeably about WiMax or are ever so slightly hesitant with the delete key; that is to those who weren't quite as able to wrangle a tax payer supported week in a somewhat obscure part of the Mahgreb?"

Since this well-argued piece poses challenges when it comes to summing up its many threads, it's best if you follow the article in full.
