Hi all

Just a quick reminder about our IRP official dynamic coalition meeting tomorrow and the launch of version 1.0 of the Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet - the fruits of everyone's hard work and efforts over the past months.  Please come along! We're in room 9 at 9.00.  Agenda pasted below.

Coalition members  - we'll be in the room from 8.30 to run through the agenda.  We want it to be as participatory as possible - so please come early so we can work everything out.

Thanks to those who came to our strategy meeting today - it was productive.  Notes to follow on IRP list soon.

Robert Bodle is twittering from afar using hash tag #igf10 .  Would be great if people could join him!  And for those not with us in Vilnius, please do join remotely via the IGF website.

Apologies for cross posting.  See you tomorrow!

All the best,
