OK, i'll do my best to send an outline of the presentation tomorrow
morning before i jump the plane.
TBH i'm daunted by presenting an outline of what is addressing in 10 or 
so minutes (so as not to use up the whole 30 minute slot). adding "what is 
meta-data" to the mix, even within the confinds of addressing, puts me 
somewhat outside my comfort zone.
