Dear John,

It's great to hear about the Haiti OSonOS.  Thanks for the report.

Is it possible for me to read more of the participants' comments?  Is the
wiki accessible to folks (like me) who weren't involved?  If so, please
tell me how.

(I also owe you an update of our Haitian event here in NYC - not an OS for
others on the list who might be reading this posting - but I wanted to
take this opportunity to make my first posting to OSLIST!)

Take care,
-Laurence (at AFSC in NY)
