Forgot to say.  I am co-chair of the read write web community group (along
with Andrei cc'd).  We are about 65 or so developers looking at making
interesting apps that have both read and write capabilities.  Certainly AR

happy to engage with any ideas you have that could lie in the intersection
of the two concepts.
