We are overwhelmed by the response and the interest that our contributors have shown in our site. This has further strengthened our belief about the requirement of a platform for all individuals to express themselves and share their opinion and views. At times, we have found our present format wanting in terms of being true to our promise to provide a platform to all. We intend to address these issues on an ongoing basis however, in order to reinforce our raison d’etre viz. Power to People we would like to introduce The C Log: The Citizen Log. The C Log is a space where articles, personal pieces, brief write-ups will all go unedited.

The flow of economic data over the past week sounded more positive than many who feared. US IP for April and European and Japanese 1Q GDP all surprised on the upside.

The campaign states that the Internet should be governed on the principles of human liberty, equality and fraternity. It should be based on the accepted principle of the indivisibility of human rights; civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, and also people's collective right to development. A rights-based agenda should be developed as an alternative to the current neo-liberal model driving the development of the Internet, and the evolution of an information society.
