He's almost always amenable to talking, though he's definitely very
busy with the recent release of his book, and is current more focused
on network policy than open content, so YMMV at this time.

He's generally very approachable- busy, but a really, really nice guy;
not at all arrogant/aloof. Can't hurt to email him, esp. if you've got
an Oxford tie- in talking to him I get the sense he wants to be more
involved in the Oxford community.

I'd offer to make an introduction, but I've already bugged him about
another pet project this week, so I'm trying to save my chits.
