Hi Melvin,

funnily enough I just signed up to the RWW group tonight 8)

I think this is a really key topic for the Augmented Web.  I did a 
presentation at spatial@gov[1] earlier this week and a key point I made 
was that the very act of using AR is an editing and creation process in 
itself.  I think this has a lot of interesting implications for how we 
engage with others and for social policy in general.

I'd be very keen on broadening this discussion out between the two 
groups as I think it's a great topic.
