Hey Pharos,

I think it sounds like a great idea. It's cool that NY is big enough
to have multiple such interested groups. IIRC there is also an art
museum in NY that has an encouragingly open attitude towards access
and digitalisation of their archives - they did some competition or
something with Flickr? Does that sound familiar?

That's a little bit *too* broad, isn't it? Open what? Access, Minds,
Relationships, Borders? :)

Good luck and keep us updated on your successes. :)
