Newsbeat is cool. Will they charge for access, or simply impose
reasonable restrictions on use?

Interesting. We share a Board member with DCN.

If "you" = "Graham", then that gets complicated. Short answer: Lots. My
CV is available here:
It's in Word format - sorry. I'm a Linux advocate, but 90% of the folks
who view my CV are Word users.
If "you" = "CalTEG", then that's even more complicated, as we have a dozen
active volunteers and ~45 people signed up on our [somewhat inactive due
to my hectic schedule and lack of a volunteer coordinator] volunteers
e-mail list. Our Davis volunteer base is small and specialized, but it
includes some Linux expertise.
