   Thanks for the clarification. I'm still a little unclear on how
   the Web pathways part will work, but it sounds like you all have
   given this a lot of thought. Maybe the confusion for me is that
   "establish web pathways" makes it sound like OWEA is actually
   CREATING or DICTATING these career paths. From your description,
   it sounds more like OWEA hopes to poll industry about what kinds
   of career paths exist and then document currently existing Web
   pathways so students can better understand what kinds of jobs
   exist in the industry and which skills they need to follow the
   path they're interested in. If that's the case, perhaps
   expanding the description of this in the White Paper would be
   useful--if the idea is to consult with industry (design firms,
   web departments in larger organizations, independent web
   designers) on this, I think that should be specifically

   As for the OWEA/InterAct discussion, I agree with you that
   InterAct provides a good curriculum framework that other
   resources like Adobe, Opera, and so on, should be plugged into.
   It doesn't appear to me that InterAct is trying to dictate its
   own exclusive set of resources, in fact, in the courses I've
   reviewed, the InterAct curriculum points out to many other
   resources on the Web. If it's just a matter of confusion between
   the distinction between OWEA and InterAct, perhaps InterAct can
   be folded into OWEA, so that it becomes the OWEA framework (that
   may or may not be acceptable, of course, to all those behind
