Thanks for posting. Išve also read this and agree that there are quite a
lot of great insights in what the Gates Foundation has captured here.  Any
chance they might be willing to join us during the face to face in June to
share directly?  I replied to a tweet that Kosta Peric made about the
project earlier in the week to point them to our work (not knowing you
were out there and likely made them aware).  This is really great stuff!

Thanks again for sharing,
