Great to meet you Kenneth. We will videotape the event and I will
post it online in addition to blogging it.
Also, the Journalism & Media Studies Center will likely send in a
formal response to the consultation paper soon before the April 30th
deadline. I welcome any suggestions. We will be focusing on the
freedom of expression side of things since we are a journalism
center, and we figure that the ISP's will be lodging a strong
response about their liabilities.
By the way should we be inviting Charles Mok to join this list?
