Thanks for the reply.  I was beginning to think you weren't interested.  I've actually been talking with another company (Highlighter.com) about helping out in the meantime.  Since I am a believer in free and open knowledge, I hope there is a compelling reason for us to work together instead.  

A call on Sunday, November 20th would work.  What time were you thinking?

Looking forward,
