Day 0 starts today with some pre-meeting events. There will be a public Freedom House reception in Taksim. I will attend the IGF as a Freedom House delegate. All FH delegates are listed here in this Twitter list (and they contribute at #FHDel). In addition to this massive event IGF 2014, there will be an alternative event that will take place in my own campus: Internet Ungovernance Forum.  They are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Although some boycott IGF and only attend the latter, many activists are planning to attend Ungovernance Forum, too. I will try to make best of all organizations. and hopefully pin down some notes. I will probably be more active at my Twitter account but without ignoring my beloved blog…
