Hi George,

I was just about to send a note about scheduling something when your 
post came through. Thanks for following up on this.

My suggestion is to schedule a open Fluid teleconference to chat about 
areas for Oracle to collaborate with Fluid sometime in the next few 
weeks. I like your suggestions for topics, these are very relevant 
issues for Fluid.

Given the fact that there are a number of designers in the Sakai 
community who already meet regularly to talk about design patterns, 
perhaps we could schedule the meeting in the same time slot so they are 
all able to attend? This group meets on Mondays from 6-7pm EDT.

What does the rest of the community think about this idea?
