Thanks for the links Matt. I am learning a lot of new stuff (I am really a computers/semweb/REST kinda person) so I have miles to go in the taxonomy department, but I am looking forward to it.

Alroy and others have done a fantastic job building and shepherding Paleodb, and its value is evident from the tremendous amount of research it has generated. I am glad to be supporting that work, while also think about how to add more value, offer more ways to access its information.
