Dear all,

that's nice of you, Graciela. I already sent an e-amil to Jochai 
yesterday suggesting the same approach. Let's see what they have to say.

Kind regards

Betreff: 	[IRP] and [IRDC] Merging as an alternativ to migrating?

Dear Jochai,

I hope you're doing fine. Thanks for subscribing the IRPers to the new 
IRDC list, but this has create some confusion - especially as one e-mail 
was entitled "migration to the new list". Some our members thought that 
we have stealthily renamed the Internet Rights and Principles Coalition; 
others worried that the abbreviation IRDC might be mistaken for the 
Canadian International Development Research Center which is actively 
supporting digital rights research.

Since we would greatly appreciate the input of AccessNow and its members 
some of us were thinking why not just to merge the new IRDC list with 
our list, if your lists' members are amenable to working with us on the 
future of Internet Rights and Principles.

Wouldn't using irp at lists.internetrightsandprinciples.org streamline 
communication and ensure quick and concerted yet decentralized action, 
when required?

Let me know your thoughts.

I'm cc'ing Dixie, my co-chair, and two coalition members who have 
written helpful mails on this issue.

Kind regards
