Dear Sir or Ms:

    Briefly, the proposal is for a Virtual Private Network, to be composed of a world wide Extranet that links many small local area Intranets (e.g., USA=47,000 zipcode areas, max.) to be owned and operated by consumer co-ops.  The Extranet would be operated by a world wide Federation of these local area co-ops.

    The benefits for the members of these co-ops would be numerous, and non-member consumers would benefit also, in accordance with co-op traditions.  The Web site below describes the origins of these benefits in some detail.

    If you and your associates feel that this proposal has at least some of the outstanding merit that I claim for it in the book-format Web site, I would be both open to and very appreciative of suggestions and/or business proposals as to how best to proceed with it's development, including any design revisions that you may deem advisable.

    The Web site is accessible from my Netopia virtual office by simply selecting "Wisdom, Inc." on the "office door".  You will also notice on the office door there a diagram of the proposed network architecture.  That diagram and it's accompanying text is the first slide of a presentation that was prepared for consumers in general, and the remainder of the show is accessed by selecting the "Pictures" button to the upper left.  The help facility shows fairly complete instructions, but if you have any questions or wish to speak to me personally, please contact me at any time by selecting "Conference" ~ the "Intercom" is an internet telephone.  Text chat and MS NetMeeting-compatible group interactions are facilitated in the conference room also.

    Thank You for your help!
