this is the line with the stance i have been asked to adopt for this 
group http://webarchitects.co.uk/ - my next email is going to be to our 
local mp richard allen who has this blog 
http://www.sheffieldhallam.co.uk/blog/index.php ... with the same

if it would help we could set up a site on our servers which run 
http://mkdoc.com/ - this would allow for multiple editors, rss import 
and export, all the usual spiel - we could set it up at a temporary 
domain until one was picked - Ciaran could blog away happilly until more

content to suit firstly our mutual and secondly individual goals - my 
guess its all the same goal in any case

strange how the same mode of production used for FLOSS is now our friend 
again to protect it - you never know; there may be hope :)
