Jeff,

I suspect Jack and I disagree on many things, but I certainly support his call for transparency.  You really should make public who is funding the TPWG  and for how much.

John

One of the TPWG participants then asked you to please disclose the source of that funding.  You stated that you could not disclose the source of the funding at that time but that it might be possible to disclose that information at a later date. Could you please provide the TPWG with that information now?
