Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


The IEEE program DITA (Digital Inclusion through Trust and Agency) is looking at issues that limit access to the on-line world. These could be expected, such as cost and availability, or complex and social, such as on-line harassment in virtual reality gaming. Points of interest raised in discussion:

  • Risks in digital controls for property rights;
  • Ownership of data collected from vulnerable communities;
  • Inclusion in business models for developing countries;

Achieving mutual respect through consensus in on-line communities.
