There is clear consensus that services are the first to benefit from worldwide e-commerce. This consensus comes from the fact that most of them can be traded directly without having to send bits over traditional transportation systems. This session explores the key issues to success in several services sectors making it clear that a careful adoption of cyberspace is at their benefit but an adequate understanding of services, technologies an markets is needed.

8 Regulation, Policy and Governance Policy Slam         Policy Slam Open to all INET 2000 Parficipants In the past fifteen years in hundreds of cities in the U.S. and around the world, "Poetry Slams" have become popular. A slam is a cross between karaoke, open mike night at a comedy club, and a electronic mailing list, where everyone gets a chance to speak. At a slam, would-be poets get three minutes to recite a poem or a read- ing before a live audience, which then rates their performance. We hope to recreate the enthusiasm and excitement of Poetry Slams by giving INET 2000 participants the microphone for three minutes to tell us about Internet policy issues that they're worried about and what we should do about them.
