3.1 - Short report of the board members

Members of the board shall give a short summary (one minute at maximum) of what happened since the last board meeting or their last report. If something needs more attention, it should be discussed in separate points.

  • Gregory: I was visiting the UNESCO conference in Marrakech and spoke in a session about "copyright for the digital age".( I also met a member of PP-MA on the side) I also had two interviews with two newspapers and one short tv one for the jn1. I paid together with Georg the hosting fees for the next 24 month for the PPI host, as a result we also got four times as much memory as before. Also worked on the Kazan conference. (see below). This weekend I will visit the congress of PP-CH

But there will be the conference next weekend (22-24 February in Aarau, Richard Stallman, Birgitta Jonsdotir and Gerd Leonhard will talk, coffee flatrate and good food are also good reasons to go there. Anyone is welcome!

I'm organizing a local event on next Saturday for the International Open Data Hackathon ( ) and the International Day for Privacy ( ).
