+1 from my part, too. Glad that Roger raised the question.
PS. FYI: The new International PET Portal and Blog will be operational by September. It will be tri-lingual (English, Dutch, Hungarian) but can be extended to other languages, too. The three "themes" (i.e. target groups) will be young ones, adults and professionals. This forum would allow a more loose communication (also between laymen and professionals) in the intersection of IT and privacy - however, to be honest, I wouldn't be glad to read to many CFPs in non-PET related subjects there. The forum will be moderated anyhow.
