Hi Antoine,
I am wondering if you received the offlist email from Ian, answering some
of your concerns? If you have any further points, please let me know. Just
for your information, the results were published by me, at
(same as the call for nominations).

Here is the blurb on the Diplo IG home page, posted on January 15, just
after midnight, beginning of day, with links to the whole post.
CS representation on Global Multistakeholder Meeting on Internet Governance
committees: selection

Thank you to all who were involved in the nomination and selection process
for the civil society representation on planning committees for the Global
Multistakeholder Meeting on Internet Governance to be held in Brazil.
Special appreciation to those who had the will and courage to self-nominate
as part of the Diplo community

Please do let us know of your specific concerns.
Best wishes for 2014,
