Planning for the IGF USA is moving ahead very rapidly. A fuller agenda will be available on the ning site by Tuesday. BUT for now, some details: the event opens at 8:45 a.m. with a plenary session with Markus Kummer, Larry Strickling, NTIA, and Lee Rainie, Pew. Workshops on Cyber Security, Access, Freedom of Information in an online world, Privacy and Security issues in web 2.0; a youth panel, and a workshop on ecrime and malicious conduct in the DNS, followed by an interactive session regarding the continuance of the IGF. One short comment: This is an IGF preparatory event -- and as such will follow the principles of the IGF. It is intended to raise awareness about the IGF. For those not familiar with the IGF, there are a lot of experts involved in organizing the IGF USA who would love to have you join us in participation, in the spirit of the IGF. If you want to get a quick update on the IGF, visit the intgovforum.org website, or perhaps you might want to read the wikipedia writeup on the Internet Governance Forum. We hope that you will join the IGF USA, and learn more about the IGF overall, and the implications it has for informing decisions affecting the Internet. Participating in the first IGF USA is a place to get started, if you are not already engaged. Expect a registration form in a day or two to sign up to participate in IGF USA.

I'd heard about this event and in particular a session with the empassioned 'Abuse of Identifiers" title. Would like to see some balance to that session so that new TLDs are not inappropriately painted as exacerbating institutional issues... want to know how to sign up to attend that session and perhaps have a pro-TLD participant on that panel so that it's balanced. How can one participate in this event?

We expect it is likely to begin around 8:30 or 9 and conclude at 6, but the logistics are still being worked out.
