Dear All

Just to let you know, I've just been interviewed by a man from the NYT/IHT (European office) about the Skype Open Letter - he'll be writing a piece in a week to ten days. I hope I said the right kind of thing…

Cool, this kind of media action cooperation worked very well.

In Italy (and in Italian) we made a press-release of Hermes Center ( http://logioshermes.org<http://logioshermes.org/> ) and broadcasted it to +50 journalists working on internet-stuff and to all the major organization active on internet privacy, digital rights and consumer protection.

Now we got coverage on the following media sites, and it started a debate on the topic in several groups and areas:
* http://www.corriere.it/tecnologia/social/13_gennaio_25/skype-privacy-lettera_705a794e-6704-11e2-95de-416ea2b54ab7.shtml
