Hi Terry,    (01)

I would like to pass a suggestion along to Todd, if you get the 
chance to speak with him. It would be much appreciated by those of us 
who can't attend in person if the briefing itself had a 
teleconference line and better yet if it included web conference such 
as the Ontolog Forum provides through cost-free VNC.    (02)

I understand that this is standard DARPA and FBO policy, so I am not 
holding my breath, but I think that when the fact that the cost is 
not a budget buster, it should get a fair hearing.    (03)
