WSIS Tunis Since the Internet is a multi-faceted beast, we felt it only right that we also make use of its ability to displays photos. As such here is a brief pictorial review of the World Summit in Tunis this week:

The World Summit saw just under 20,000 people turn up to a series of giant tents, otherwise known as the Kram conference centre. The first day saw long queues at the main entrance, not helped by the fact the metal detectors had been set too high and delegates' badges were setting them off. One of the main problems for people until late in the conference was getting food. For the first few days, and until the day after the main opening, all that was available was a brand of sandwich which no one had ever heard of, and are unlikely to do so again.
