    Congratulations, George. Have you been to Ottawa before ? Nice little city.
    I believe Etienne has done a fair bit of work with the Canadian Federal Government on CoP, no ?
    I know an interesting guy – old old friend – who works withthe Dept of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, who is quite involved with givernment-online stuff, and very interested in cop, wirearchy, etc.

  2. Olá, meu caro Professor Lévy
    Desenvolvo no Brasil, há cerca de 25 anos, estudos e pesquisa na área de cidades, autonomia e, mais recentemente, tenho estudado inteliência coletiva aplicada em projetos sociais.
    Dirijo uma organização chamada Cidade Futura (www.cidadefutura.org.br)e , e integro a rede de líderes da Fundação Avina, com o projeto “Escola do Terceiro Setor”. Estamos organizando, em maio de 2005, a III Conferência Sul de Responsabilidade Social, onde discutiremos Tecnologias sociais educativas aplicadas em projetos sociais, na formação de líderes, educadores e profissionais de empresas, governos e ONGs. E, a partir deste ano (2005) inciamos o projeto Universidade Social, no qual pretendo desenvolver pesquisas em profundidade nas áreas acima. Com faço para conversarmos? Tenho, infelizmente, a barreira da língua, mas estou determinado a “dominá-la”, mas tenho uma um interesse ativo em desenvolver estes estudos em cooperação. Pensei até em visitá-lo no Canadá, mas quero saber da possibilidade de encontrá-lo, antes, no Brasil, e quem sabe num de nossos cursos ou Conferências em Florianópolis, Santa Catarina? Obrigado por sua atenção. Posso conversar pelo telefone?
    José Paulo
    Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brasil
