Roadmap Launched in Brazil

1 December 2005
Washington, DC

Just returned from a wonderful and wired trip to Brazil. I was there at the invitation of Instituto CONIP for the launch of the portuguese version of the "Roadmap for Open ICT Ecosystems," the product of the Open ePolicy Group that I founded earlier this year.

It was a whirlwind tour -- 2 days in Brasilia for the CONIP 2005 conference, 2 days in Sao Paulo for a presentation at IBM Brasil and a series of press interviews, and then happily 3 days of pure holiday in Salvador. Thanks to Vagner Diniz of CONIP, Gabi Simionato Klein of TramaWeb, and Florencia Ferrar of e-Strategia Publica for helping make my time in Brazil easy, fun and productive.

Here's a photographic taste of Salvador ...

But only the Pause button has been hit. Sunday evening I'm off to the Netherlands for another round of Roadmap presentations and meetings. It's exhausting and exhilirating at the same time. Ottowa, Portland, Amman, Tunis, Brazil, Amsterdam, Copenhagen . . . and then?
