Just one note of clarification.  I'm trying to make clear to our  
museum partners that these conversations are the first of many.  They  
have busy schedules, but have all seemed thrilled that we will be  
asking them questions now, during Fluid Engage, and we will be working  
closely with them throughout.  So, don't panic if you don't get  
through all the CI items -- but prioritizing never hurts!
