I love the idea of a wiki. We use one for our LUG and it is just a lot
of fun and a nice place to slings ideas around. It's like a "living"
document so to speak and would serve as a valuable resource, imho.

And if cynics ridicule freedom, ridicule community...if ``hard nosed 
realists'' say that profit is the only ideal...just ignore them, and use 
copyleft all the same.
