Whereas the EIF Dinner Debate on the 9 December 2007 discussed “ICT and Development”, which is one of the cornerstones of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), this breakfast provided a more general assessment of the upcoming Rio meeting.
Speakers addressed participants on the question, "How can we ensure the Internet delivers on its full potential as we develop the Information Society?", which was one of the fundamental topics that dominated the Rio agenda.
