I love the project and I think it is a very very unique snapshot of "the internet" and "the real world" - it is a global snapshot and horizon scan... it is very valuable for me to look back on the reports from all the countries and draw comparisons... it is like the story of the internet.. different chapters, different themes, every year :)
- Mireille Raad, Lebanon - GISWatch author
GISWatch 2011 offers timely commentary on the future of the internet as an open and shared platform that everyone has the right to access.
- Frank La Rue, UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression
For substantive policy action to take place more thoughtful leadership from virtual roundtables like GISWatch is needed.
