To summarize the tech situation:

* In theory I'm the lead, but we're a small team and generally operate
internally by consensus agreement. In reality I'm lead programmer far
more than I'm "CTO".

I happily defer to Mark or others on network & hardware issues where
they know better, and we have little need for a strict reporting
hierarchy at this time.

* We're going through Carolyn for operations issues (arranging any
necessary purchase orders, ensuring that bills are paid,
contracts/insurance dealt with etc)

Note that I'll be working from the main office from next month.

* Jan-Bart is our Board contact if and when needed.
