Indeed...  we do seem to have quite a bit of dialogue.  :-)

I'm not certain I know what an "advocacy platform" is, but I am hoping in 2014 that 1net will move beyond
dialogue into actual collaboration towards solutions on some of the various Internet issues that have been 
discussed.  (I don't think we need much more than some basic processes for issue selection and consensus 
assessment, and there's already running code elsewhere that may be leveraged for those types of tasks.)

Thanks! (and Happy New Year to all)
