Dear Milton,

Thank you very much for your answer.

We are absolutly conscious about the fact that we need non-european 
members of the community to make this story a success. And there are no 
B plans for such an important thing.

In fact, as I mentioned in my mail there are more than 10 technology 
providers (big companies and smaller ones in the trade) who are 
interested to become involved in the Foundation and the benchmark task 
forces we are working on. Another important fact is that the project 
just started a couple of months ago, so it is still in its infancy, and 
this is why you did not get any results from the links you clicked.

 From the user community, we gathered a significant amount of final 
users and practitioners with a very short notice for the Technical User 
Community (TUC) meeting and, among them, we had three from US companies 
that travelled over just for the meeting. This tells us that users are 
conscious about the need for an industrial benchmarking effort.

As you know, setting up a benchmark is a tremendous work, and we know 
because we come from the field of Data Management, and some of us have 
been involved in TPC benchmarks. So, we are starting this big effort 
trying to get the largest part of the community involved to make sure 
that this is a success.

Thanks for your comments and, please, keep telling us about your ideas 
and suggestions because they will help us improve our work.

Yours,
Josep L. Larriba Pey
LDBC Coordinator
