wanted to add to the points where we are talking about the ''real'' problems
of not being able to conduct a ''successful'' free-media program... the
biggest one stays : we are not organized... we have all the people (lot more
to start off) we have resources.. (Rahul and Sankarshan have mentioned far
to often) but we remain unorganized.. weekly meetings didnt worked (not as
expected).. mailing lists receive fragmented response (i'll also find a
hiding place for these :-) )
We need a working group to handle Free-media .. a core committee that meets
often and they in turn coordinate at their level (regional or volume)
