Telecoms watchdog, Oftel, is holding a top-level meeting next week with selected personnel from the Internet industry -- in private. Not only will the invitation-only bash be held behind closed doors, it won't be open to the scrutiny of the media or ordinary Net users. The only thing a spokesman for Oftel was able to say was that the Internet Forum event would happen on Tuesday. But he didn't know when -- or what would be on the agenda. Yeah, right, like we believe ya. Those believed to have RSVPed so far include AOL UK, BT and the Campaign for Unmetered Communications (CUT). With all the shenanigans that's happened this last week, you can expect some sparks from these guys. Just imagine it, all these people in the same room together thrashing out the ins and outs Internet strategy in the UK. It would make this weekend's fight for the title of undisputed heavyweight champion of the world look like two little girls playing with their dollies. Although Oftel said it would publish minutes after the event, it seems Oftel's little cosy get together with its "selected" industry chums will only serve to alienate it still further form ordinary Net users. Transparency...they've heard of it. ®
