	A solid base makes for a good start. Agreed.

	I don't see a necessity to decide BETWEEN virtual or
	real. The one compliments the other. It may start here,
	but if it is to succeed, it will have to spread to those who
	are not on-line. There are many many resources that we
	cannot begin to handle without a non-internet base.
	Having started here, we can avoid some of the 'hide-bound'
	thing of those who have gone before and believe that the
	Internet is only a passing fancy.

	The virtual can easily be the rapid communications medium
	that makes the real easier to build.

	Much organization can be done right here, but I expect that
	it will be necessary for people to meet face to face to begin
	the non-internet building process.

	Everything starts somewhere.  :-)
