Wonderful! With you in spirit.
Also congratulations to Daniel LG (of Crowdcrafting) on being appointed
I am very interested in using Crowdcrafting (haven't quite worked out what
I want to do but perhaps with Ross Mounce on species or bibliographic
metadata). Daniel explains it can be quite quick - maybe as little as 1
hour - to set up application
