A warm thank you for your support CoreTx. :)
In order to provide some information about our actual status :
- We're about to get the NFPO (Non For Profit Organisation) part done.
Paperwork is OK, we're going to file and register now.
- Website is online and evolving. At that level we could use some help of a
Drupal hacker. We're new to it (heeeeelppp!).
- We have access to professional grade tech/telco infrastructure,
- We've compiled a first list with valid, live and personal press contacts.
At this very time we're able to get in touch with some 166 different
contacts covering radio, tv, paper press, internet sites and public
relations agencies. Included Belga, the main Belgian news agency
(http://www.belga.be/EN/portrait.asp). This agency also interconnects with
the biggest international press agencies.
The intention is to extend this contact list over time. The idea behind it
is to not have to piggy-back on other events and organisations to gain
I think we're up now to get some media attention and coverage if we deserve
A little off topic but I thought this could be of interest to you.
