Fell Short on the Q&A ...

by Darius Kadivar on

Interesting Initiative but badly organized in the end ... No possibility to hear the Press and audience ask questions or hear the responses of the panalists after they delivered their speeches.

Apparently they had problems in terms of security and from what BHL said in the begining of his intervention it appears that this video has been available online only recently because it was crippled by IRI hackers ... 

Too Bad ...
