Dear friends,

I've started working on an planning document with lots of smaller and 
bigger tasks as well as deadlines. The purpose is to help us get into 
higher speed so we can successfully launch the website on December 4th 
with a press conference and a half-day workshop for journalists. It 
would be great if you could have a close look at this draft document 
before the conference call tomorrow so we can improve it (adding tasks 
and specifying who is taking the lead on which bits). And here's a 
proposal for an agenda for tomorrow:

- update on progress re programming and data normalisation (Friedrich)
- the contract with web-designers (Erik)
- venue for December 4th launch (Olivier)
- what will the name of the website be (plus domain name)
- budget and cost-sharing arrangement
- which basic texts do we need to prepare for the website?
- do we add a cyber-action component from the beginning?

I'm sure there's many things I've overlooked, but hopefully it's a 
useful (re)start.
