Do you have a link for that?  I found
http://www.genevasummit.org/media/20, but it is dead, nor is it on

Thanks, I added this to the links page at http://igcaucus.org/links and
added years.  Am I still missing any?  Feel free to add this list to the
IRP site too, or better, link to the IGC's copy.  BTW, does everyone
know that the IRP's main website is down (but the charter site is up)? 
Not sure about the mailing list, but I'm cc'ing to it in case it is up.

Indeed.  Part of the problem is that whereas there are strong global
action networks on issues like IP and the environment, in IG we have
only the IGC, and it is invisible to (or at least ignored by) large
parts of the Internet activist community.
