[Nettime-bold] Tell The U.S. Government What is Needed To Close The DigitalDivide!


Dear list members,

We thought that you might find this important online consultation of interest.

-------
JOIN THE U.S. NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS' WORKING GROUP
FOR THE G-8's DOT FORCE!

Last summer, the G8 (8 richest countries) created the Digital Opportunity
Task Force (DOT Force) to identify the most effective ways the G8 can help 
close
the global digital divide. The DOT Force will report findings and
recommendations to the G8 in July 2001.

The Markle Foundation is sponsoring the DIGOPP Online Working Group for
U.S.-based non-profit organizations (February 12 - April 20, 2001). The
input from DIGOPP will feed into the DOT Force deliberations. DIGOPP will:

* assess the current situation
* discuss priority targets for concerted action by the G-8
* identify successes and failures of existing efforts to bridge
the digital divide, including best practices and lessons learned

The DIGOPP Working Group provides an important opportunity for the
non-profit community to participate in shaping the work of the DOT
Force as it prepares its report for the G-8.  We hope you will join in this
key effort.
