I'm happy to serve as back up on this one.

Not really directly related. I am quite interested in Context, as were  
others, but not enough to lead it. Why not let it float for a bit and  
see what happens?

Wow. To my mind a call with 10-20 people on is too big to get real  
work done. But then I imagine most of the actual work happening  
between calls via email and wiki. I see the calls as being more like a  
daily (or rather weekly) standup - succinct updates on progress and  
removing obstacles.
