A couple of months ago the chairman of ISOC-CH (Vicenzo Palotti)
reached out to OFCOM and asked for their position and any plan to
reach out to the civil society.
The answer was that they will basically follow the EU position (which
is not a bad thing). They also stated that they did not had any plans
for open consultation to the civil society, which we made clear is not
what is expected as part of the current internet governance principles
from the WSIS summit.
I have no opposition to the core team to make a statement.

Does anyone know the Swiss delegate of the upcoming ITU conference in
In response to my tweet pointing to this email in the SwiNOG mailinglist
archive I got a response with five names of the Swiss Delegation:
There was the accreditation list mailed to some
ISOC list last week, 5
people on the Swiss delegation:
Mr Frédéric RIEHL, Chef des Affaires Internationales, OFCOM (Suisse) /
BAKOM, frederic dot riehl at bakom dot admin dot ch
Mr Hassane MAKKI, Affaires Internationales, Federal Office of
Communications - OFCOM, hassane dot makki at bakom dot admin dot ch
Mr Raphael SCHERRER, Conseiller Economiste, OFCOM (Suisse) / BAKOM,
raphael dot scherrer at bakom dot admin dot ch
Mr Dirk-Olivier VON DER EMDEN, Conseiller juridique, Office Fédéral de la
Communication (OFCOM/BAKOM), dirk-olivier dot von-der-emden at bakom dot
admin dot ch
Mr Rolf WEBER, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Zurich
First one is flagged as Head of delegation, second one is deputy.
So we know now that mainly BAKOM/OFCOM people are traveling to Dubai.
Please all individuals refrain from sending personal emails the delegation!
They don't need geeky comments or even stupid insulting.
I'd rather suggest that the SwiNOG core team is going to formulate a clear
statement to the Swiss ITU delegation (please note that I left the SwiNOG
core team >1y ago). SwiNOG needs to speak in a united voice in this matter.
I also hope that general interest media (Swiss television, Tages-Anzeiger,
Blick et.al.) would pick this out as a central theme, along with special
interest media (computer/telecommunication). It would be simply great to
read a large interview with the delegates, where they commit themselves to
stand for the self-regulated bottom-up Internet as we know and love. Support
not only from this community but also from general media and us, the Swiss
people, would strenghten their position... so please, dear journalists
around, make a move :-) It will have an impact not only in Switzerland, but
also in neighbouring countries.
Except from heise.de I haven't seen much yet about the ITU conference in
special interest media (computers/telecommunications). Not sure why, I guess
inside-it.ch et.al. have some backlog... *hint*
Meanwhile I hope everyone would help to share the link and video I mentioned
in my previous mail:
Also I would like to include the link to the slides of SwiNOG #25 of Arnold
Nipper with some unbiased information:
Thanks for listening and sharing!
