Unfortunately I will be in a flight to Geneva and arrive around 5pm in
the city. If the venue is anywhere near Diplo Foundation's office then
it would be easy to reach.

In the meantime, we have been raising issues with relevance to
Internet Rights and Principles in Pakistan. Its a start and we are
getting mixed reactions. Here is a recent post that also points out
certain clauses of the UN human rights charter and creates the
relevance to VOIP issues being faced by Pakistani citizens. Its a
rocky road trip but someone has to continue the fight:

Lack of VOIP De-regularization by PTA in Pakistan destroying or
boosting local access and industry?

Probably if we intend to have dinner together that would be also a
good venue to catch-up for late comers?

-- Looking forward to see you all again!
