:) Well, both were implied, really; MySoc have a good network, it would
seem silly to overlook them when they're directly doing transport work.
They would be good openspace/demo material i thought, but there would
be no harm in them doing both, right? Thanks for taking this up!

I'd like to hang on until the end of the week on the offchance I do
hear anything back from Graham Stickler. I'll cc or ping you about it
then, if that's all right. I like the resonance of the buzzwords there
on Muki's site, would be worth getting in touch in any case.

SAGE sounds great but perhaps not for a general audience...

What about one of the bibliography/repository/citation projects 
that Jonny was collaborating on the Library of Congress consultation
with? Chances of gettin AaronSW over to London? Or a Talisian?

cheers, thanks again for talking to Tom+Francis about this topic,
