I will add to your request to include video streaming.  The Internet
Community in Puerto Rico and our government legislature is following this
case very closely. I think that it will very instructive for these people to
watch and hear these discussions as they happen, specially when they happen
at a global level.

By the way, I will be glad to be one of the presenters.
