      The OECD is organising a Ministerial Meeting on the Future of the
      Internet Economy on 17-18 June 2008 in Seoul, Korea. Government
      ministers from more than 40 countries, global business and civil
      society leaders, academics and technical experts will meet with more
      than 1000 participants to forge broad principles that can provide an
      enabling policy environment for the Internet Economy.
      To ensure the widest participation to this event, Angel Gurría, the
      OECD Secretary General, invites Internet users to upload a short video
      on a dedicated YouTube video channel answering the following question:
      “How can the Internet make the world a better place?”

      The OECD will select some of the best contributions and, in Seoul,
      will ask ministers and meeting participants to react in a video.
      We would like to invite you to record your answer to this question in
      a short 1 or 2 minute video and to upload it on YouTube. You are
      totally free with regard to how you want to address the question and
      the content of your answer.
      Entries will be closed the day before the opening of the Seoul
      Ministerial Meeting (16 June 2008).
      The links below will help you upload your video on the Web site.
