That is the broad take-away from two days of debate about the role of the Internet in society and the economy at the e-G8 summit in Paris.

Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt will face the difficult task of trying to convey a message about what they want for the future of the Internet to heads of state at the Group of Eight leading nations meeting in Deauville, France.
