I am sorry that you had to risk yourself in order for me to avoid the
risk to myself. I wish you had not done that onto yourself. The policy
is more important to me than the paper, as I described in my second
paragraph on my previous email. What I wished for is that the publisher
made a pdf available for everyone without the need to risk privacy,
freedom and security to all. Thank you for your good intentions,

By skimming the document, I can note that it is much more broad than
just proposing electrical grid coverage. I will study it later in more
I want to bring your attention to a new report launched by the Alliance for
Affordable Internet (A4AI). It focuses on sustainable access – a topic I
began writing about in 2017 thanks to Luca inviting me to contribute to the
DC3 report :-) Needless to say, it's a topic dear to my heart.
The report analyses how governments embed climate issues into their
broadband policies, looks at the consequences of inaction, and suggests
policy recommendations towards a greener internet.
There was an ask ( please see very interesting transcript from precious
email on WSIS 2021 Forum session 3 bridging digital divide) to connect with
whatever available tech with speed rather than wait for the best or newest
solution, for covid 19 has made economies dependent on ICTs.
In the west with land line phones there is 3 way calling ...wonder if there
is technology fix to take this to more callers say 10 callers connecting.
The bandwidth to enable zoom education is not available to all, but land
line phones are more common in rural areas. Also dial up internet is still
an important option and content should be made avaliable for these
technologies. I grew up through dial up and know it can be used effectively
for some purposes ...
