Hi everyone,

I've just been catching up on my emails, and on rereading Andrew's message,
I think it would be really good to have a Skype chat about useful overlaps
between Annotation Studio and Open Literature.

For one thing, a backend based closely on the OKF's Annotator would (I
guess?) make it much easier to import existing annotations from Open
Shakespeare - including the 3 500 FinalsClub Foundation ones, which I
really want to put back up online.

So, how about a skype chat? https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/openlit/
Fill in this doodle with your availabilities, and if sufficient numbers
reply we may also try to follow the chat with a short online hacking
session to prepare for the sprint.
