In Italy (and in Italian) we made a press-release of Hermes Center (
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:
