Hi, Mr. Jacknis:
I was able to attend one meeting of WATPA last fall, 1998; I was
interested to learn about WATPA's involvement with the Congress' Internet
Caucus Advisory Committee; I was also curious to know if the Committee
receives any input from either public (real people) or from agencies
in which real people deal with Internet use with the public?
