Hi Jeff, all

 

Thanks for bringing this to the Group’s attention.

 

In fact, Steph and I are both going to be at the Conference, talking
separately but discussing similar digital divide and mobile web issues.

 

Hope to see some of the other members of the Group there?

 

All the best.

 

Ken
