I don't have internet at home at the moment (loooong fight with  
Orange).  I can stay at the office, but time will have to be at 6 or  
6:30 or so.

Tuesday or Thursday work?  Wednesday could work for me as well.

Will ping and can send dump or just give you access directly.

I think it needs it's own identity but that it should be closely  
linked to the OD site so that traffic can flow easily both ways.   
Let's keep opendatacommons.org (especially as existing links and  
google SEO, etc).

Will do.
