Mercuri really is quite close in her thinking to where we are (no more
than the minor differences among voting-project list members). I think
once we get the demonstration system in place, she'll be pretty
enthusiastic about it.

Apologies to Charles then... and congratulations to him on a good job.

I have a hunch it will be. My book was positively reviewed on slashdot
(back in July), including a link to the online version of it. I had
been running around 3 GB monthly traffic (about 100 MB/day), then got
2.6 GB on the first day of the review (with diminishing, but increased
traffic for the next few days).

That's great. Hopefully we can integrate some of these people into the
final parts of the demo (and on into production).

Yours, David...
