Cool (re the grasping part) as it sure saves precious Time that
misunderstanding then carrying the wrong message forward costs.. :))

Thank *You* for the feedback.. Just dropped an email to the (virtual)
wildlife community I know to see if there is interest.. Helped knowing
that there exists *a possibility* for it to be mutual interest..

Would it be reasonable to try to explain to those less tech-oriented
by saying something like: "This is to data what super computers are to
*more power* on research projects.."?

They're both.. Linked.. By many, many.. Into something that boggles the Mind..

Something like that this would be creating a super [database] that
isn't the blood, sweat, and tears of just any one entity is what my
Mind is visualizing and trying to then re-interpret to friends without
them completing glazing over while I'm hyperventilating at the mere
concept.. :))

Have also dropped a bug into my disability circle locally.. CILs,
centers for independent living, internationally could use something
like this to disseminate numbers related to the effectiveness of
people moving out of long term care facilities and becoming
productive, included members of their communities.. The types of data
I've seen crunched over the years would fit into something like this..
Just need to find a way to "sell" how *TOTALLY COOL* it would be if
implemented..

Off to "muse".. Thanks again for the feedback..

Cindy :)
