hi robin

Thanks for the reminders..

APC will be working on workshop proposals and i 
don't see a problem with the timeline there, but, regarding the papers

>Many more details regarding the submission of

- the website doesn't give any details as to the 
shape these papers should take (unless i'm missing something?)
- do you think there's any chance of an extension? (say a week to 10 days?)

on the workshop proposals.. i will be posting an 
update on the workshops APC would like to 
propose, or will be partnering in for proposals 
after i get back from leave on july 16th..   one 
you might be interested in particular robin, in 
terms of followup, is one that amnesty and the 
observer might organise (based on their 'irrepressible' campaign..

we ran into them at the UK IGF parliamentary 
forum - i think adam has their details - the 
observer guy was keen to interview you robin (but 
don't have his contact details to hand..)

shall follow up soon
