TIME FOR IMPLEMENTATION

Members automatically receive InterMedia, the IIC's quarterly journal. It reviews key developments in telecommunications and media policy, regulatory affairs, emergent ICT trends and, especially, the impact of the internet across the entire ecosystem. InterMedia is a rich resource of articles, reports and interviews and the contents reflect the IIC's on-going discussion themes.

Our annual conference in Washington in October was the last that I will be presiding over, as we made the announcement that Chris Chapman, currently chairman of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), will soon be taking over as IIC president. I’m pleased to say that the IIC could hardly have a better person to lead us into the next stage of our development – Chris set the goal of the ACMA to be a world-leading converged regulator, and his own and the regulator’s output have been prodigious in that direction and perfectly match our overarching theme for our events and publications in recent years. Washington marked a turning point in that we are now not so much discussing why and how convergence is taking place, but more how we implement and manage it. With major communications reviews underway and certain new rules in place, our highlevel networking is needed more than ever and I’ll be watching with great interest. 

Fabio Colasanti, President, IIC
