The revelations of mass surveillance by the US and other intelligence services are expected to considerably influence the 8th Internet Governance Forum in Bali, Indonesia this week.
There is a fear, said Robert Guerra from the Canadian Citizen Lab, that the surveillance topic will drive other issues and outcomes of the meetings, too. With "Surveillance and Snowden," the Association for Progressive Communication and Giganet during their Joint Fora on Security, Surveillance and the Militarization of Cyberspace provide for a first showdown on day zero in Bali.
