I'm one of the few who has participated so far, and I will do it again 
if the journal goes live again. As Dave said, it will be slow going 
though, we all have lifes to live as well. BUT: I do think this is a 
good, worthwhile and fun project.
I will do my share as/when time permits, and hope that more people will 
I am currently uploading the ICA show to my MP3-player to accompany me 
on my walk to work tomorrow. Hard to take notes while walking, but I'll 
do my best to mail my thoughts anyway.
