The meeting has started, we are gathered in the impressively posh Marriot Hotel in Ipanema. I measure poshness by how many times I politely get asked what I’m doing (three times before getting to the venue). I guess that it’s just because I look like I don’t belong, but it could also be the fact that i’ve decided to go very casual.
Anyway, this seems like a U.N. meeting, or at least what the U.N. would look like if everyone wore t-shirts and carried laptops. Everyone seems to be here, Geist, Lessig, Ito, Dotorow and Wales.
The speeches have started, so I better get going. More later.
