The distinction Brand makes works for me.

Local Community properties are what Chemistry calls Colligative Properties[1].  One consequence for statistics about Communities is that who encodes the invitation list identifiers matters.  For the London Olympics, there are 203 Olympic Committees and 246 Country Entities represented.  See [2].  There is a G-20 Summit next week.  You would think Economists could count ... OK, so the 27 EU Countries are included as a block but some EU Members are named separately, a total of 42 ... oops with Country dependencies 90.   See [3].  This information is critical for the Press Coverage of the Olympics.   The 160 or so opinions "missing" from the G-20 are important too, I think.

Good luck with everything Brand, I hope the distinction you're making works for you.

Believe it or not, people know how to find me without your website enabling spambots for my government email address.

George, Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not interested in submitting for the following reasons:

>This morning Dr. Holdren suggested I work on the U.S.  – India Health Initiative:
>Last week at the Health Datapalooza, Jonathan Gluck suggested I help Dr. Merkin with more prizes:
