This chapter examines the UN Global Alliance on ICT and Development (GAID). GAID was designed as an innovative mechanism to enable private sector leadership, and multistakeholder involvement in addressing the plethora of follow-up issues emerging from the Tunis WSIS. The chapter highlights the impact of the decision to choose a private sector CEO (Craig Barrett, Intel) as the chair of GAID (as opposed to a UN official/Diplomat for WSIS and IGF). GAID spawned some interesting initiatives, the most successful of which was the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies (G3ICT). However, GAID barely made it through its first five-year mandate, and it has subsequently disappeared. This chapter examines what went right with GAID, and what went horribly wrong.
