Dear Jeremy/Andrew,

We suggest that you may like to contact Anja Kovacs
<anja at> for addition of Internet Democracy Project,
India to the list of organizations from Asia-Pacific.

Not only Anja has been active on IG issues but was also part of Digital
Rights Advocacy event organized by OSI, CDT & CEU in Budapest in March.
Recently, she has been very actively working on similar issues and also
towards building a south asia wide network of CSOs on free expression and
Internet Rights. 

We believe that her contribution at the Singapore meeting will be very

In the concept note there is a mention of background papers. We will suggest
that those tasked with writing these background papers should be given a
heads-up soonest as the time to suggested schedule for meeting is already
very short. 

Best wishes and regards

Subject:  Second draft of concept note for "Best Bits" meeting - sign-ons
now sought

Hello again all,

Three sets of comments were received on the first draft of the concept note,
so here is the second draft with revision marks to show the changes.  Note
that I am still waiting on some quotes before I can finalise the budget.

You will also notice that at the very end there is a place for supporting
organisations to add their names.  If you are happy with the concept and
would like to add your name as a supporting organisation, please let me know
so that we can add you here.

Later, we will reach out to individuals from amongst your organisations and
the others listed as potential participants, about moderating or presenting
at particular sessions.  Everyone will have an opportunity to participate in
their area of expertise.

Many thanks for your support for this idea.
