I’m cross posting this debate to the [Fsfe-ie] list who are producing a 
co-ordinated response to the envisaged European patent law, which is 
against all our interests - the archive is open for those folk with time 
on our hands [1] ... which I guess is no one on the [ox-en] list [2]

I’m on too many lists as well, and in line with martin's suggestion I’m 
going to forward (under separate cover) an email I sent earlier today to 
the [Fsfe-ie] list suggesting a common place to publish our ideas

I refer the [ox-en] list to the thread started by chris croome entitled 
  "[ox-en] How about a wiki.oekonux.org site?" - i think both chris and 
me sense a need to mainstream and demystify the FLOSS mode of production 
to the world outside our newly forming and overlapping communities - 
IMHO this can be done best by participation from, and reference to, the 
(stakeholder) communities themselves; can we all consider therefore 
contacting interested parties and figure out an acceptable location for 
this joint work ?


"I was told later that there is a striking chemical phenomenon that can 
be demonstrated with supersaturated solution of anhydrous sodium 
acetate, cooled below its normal freezing point of around room 
temperature. A single tiny flake of the solid chemical is dropped into 
the supercooled solution ... and within moments the entire volume of the 
liquid undergoes a swift phase change, becoming a solid crystalline 
mass." Julian May - The Magnificat
