yes, i'm ok. altough we are close with the government, but we still keep
the distance. thats actually our strategy. we have do cooperaton with the
gov for certain issue like internet safety, but we stand on the differrent
side with the gov for other several issue like censorship.

ps: anyway, the un officer that not allowed me to distribute the postcards,
seems little bit surprise when I joined the indonesian delegation for
meeting with the UNdesa and the igf yesterday. but sorry again, i didnt
remember his name
