Thanks very much for explaining BI's background and goals in our call today. I enjoyed reviewing your 1992 paper on groupware which is much more than a technology prescription. The key challenge, underscored by your analysis of pilot testing, is channeling investment to implement specific solutions, in my case SDS, and the science of Communication Metrics. Your alliance strategy coupled with the Colloquium through SCPD can be a big help. When time permits, please let me know if Communication Metrics can fit within your alliance model?
