European Digital Rights wishes all readers a courageous and fruitful new
year. Looking back at 2004, we have to conclude fear is a bad source of
legislative inspiration. Hopefully in 2005 the balance between security
and privacy, between business interests and personal freedom can be
maintained by a truly blind Lady Justice.
Thanks to another donation from the Open Society Institute, EDRI-gram will
be continued in 2005. EDRI also thanks the formal board-members of DB-NL,
the Dutch digital rights movement that ceased to exist in 2001, for
donating the remaining funds to EDRI-gram.
EDRI-gram currently has 2.463 members. Many other readers visit the
websites with translations of EDRI-gram in Italian, Russian and Ukrainian.
