I support the nomination of Carlos too, I appreciated his skill and his passion working together at the IGF in Rio and when he co-organized the meeting in Sapporo

Hi everyone: I would like to continue on the steering committee as I
have just ended my mandate as GNSO councillor (which took a huge chunk
of my time) at ICANN so that I can dedicate more attention to the IRP.

Just a quick bio for reference: I am the vice-coordinator of the
Center for Technology and Society (CTS) at Getulio Vargas Foundation
(FGV), in Rio de Janeiro. We have been one of the founding members of
the former Internet Bill of Rights DC. In the first three years of the
coalition we have tried to foster the debate on the framing and
enforcement of internet rights. We have participated on the DC?s
workshop in IGF07, on the two Dialogue Forum on Internet Rights (DFIR)
organized in Italy, and hosted a workshop on the Internet Bill of
Rights during the ISummit08, in Sapporo, Japan, inviting some of the
key members of the coalition at the time to debate and to prepare for
IGF08. Last month we have started a collaborative initiative with the
Brazilian Ministry of Justice to draft an Internet Bill of Rights for
the Brazilian internet. The initiative is called "Marco Civil da
Internet Brasileira" ("Civil Framework of Brazilian Internet"

I will be great to meet/see you in Sharm later this week.
