Hello all,

I am in Paris for the IGF this week. However, I will not be able to attend the meeting on the 15th due to other work obligations. I have many ideas about the questions on the agenda, and hope to see notes from the meeting so I may comment on them later.

If anyone is around tonight, Tuesday 13 Nov, I would love to meet some of you for dinner and/or drinks. If you respond to me via email directly (not to spam this listserve) we can coordinate with a Signal group or something. Let me know!
