    I regretfully missed the talk with Michael Nelson, but am encouraged to see such events happening here in Qatar. With the internationalized domain names now available, and the forward thinking and momentum of ICTQatar, this country is set to make even bigger waves in the global internet community.

    I enjoyed Michael’s seminar about the future of the internet. He made my day when he talked about cloud computing for two reasons, 1) because I was trying o push this concept to the local for more than 2 years and 2) because I’m finishing my dissertation in ISM which touches the cloud computing topic heavily. The seminar was wonderful and I hope we can keep in touch with Michael.
