(I assume you meant me, Cliff -- I get that all the time).  I did
indeed volunteer to start documenting what I've learned about how to
put together a project proposal and what I will learn about going 
through the incubation process.  I've been planning on getting 
something started this weekend.

For now I've started a page [1] with just a couple ideas.  I'll
start working seriously on it in about 16 hours. (Sunday afternoon 
PDT).

If Berin or anyone else wants to add some ideas or start adding some
real content before I do, please go ahead and I'll pick up where you
leave off.  If there's already a better place to start adding this 
content, let me know.

Thanks,
Cliff
