Dear Arne,

Sorry to have missed the Dublin meeting, but following from a distance has

P.s. Let me bring to our media's attention a workshop that Marta Fuentes and
I helped to conceive related to advocacy. It would be great if those working
on community media policy (broadly conceived) anywhere in the world
submitted abstracts for consideration:
