Hi Fluid/Floe folks,
I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Taliesin and I am in the Inclusive Design
Masters Program. I'm interested in contributing. My background is in
front-end development and web standards.

Just trying to figure out how to jump in as I have been lurking on the list
for a while. I'm in Toronto until June 26th. I am usually in St. John's,
NL. I should be able to attend stand-ups and community meetings later in
the summer after August 15th and would like to get familiar with Floe and
the PhET project over the summer.

-Taliesin
