The impact of information technology on the society is by all means broad and profound. The opportunities and challenges information technology has brought to us can be traced to the industrial restructuring in the U.S. of the early days and evident in the discussion on digital divide and electronic government of the present days. As far as the application of information technology to political process, the current research efforts are on electronic government and electronic democracy as applied in the domestic context. However, recognizing the compression of time and space as information technology makes possible, international organizations of the information age should be able to serve local people more directly and international civil society able to conduct transnational grass root mobilization more easily with the aid of information technology. This paper observes the Online Forum on Internet Governance in held in 2004 and the IGOVAP forum in 2005 with two main inquiries. One is on the extent to which Internet helps mobilize local people from developing countries and civil society organizations to participate in global policy process, while the other is on the extent to which Internet helps local people from developing countries and civil society organizations have real impact on global policy outcome with regard to Internet Governance.
