The Greek delegate has just spoken at the stocktaking meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Geneva.

He gave some stats from the first Athens meeting in November 2006 that might be worth preserving:

  • 1350 participants (including 152 media, and coming from 97 countries)
  • 8 translation booths and 20 translators
  • 50 buses
  • 7 metal detectors
  • 4 X-ray machines

By the way, there is an IRC chatroom on in the room #igf going on as we speak.
