The "project collaboration" aspect is something I want to jump into, either by joining into a project that already exists or by starting something of my own. I'm also interested in the strong international flavor of the participants, but I guess tha…

Hi Chris - I haven't done much with the portal but I'm sure there's a lot more that I could be doing. I was the communications director for the first USA Science & Engineering Festival. There is another one planned for April 2012. It's a great project, but the time commitment is way too much for me. If you're interested in learning more or helping out in 2012 contact Ruth Kiefer, she's a co-director, rkiefer@mindspring.com.

Hi, Christopher,

I gather you are a friend of Kim Lightle's and Mary Lightbody's. Glad you've joined us.

Would you be willing to share a little bit about yourself, for those of us who would like to get to know you?
