...for a project presented by a University, IIUC :-( I'm barely related
with the academic world in Spain. Prize winning ideas, though, are one
of my specialties, as I'm so lazy that I never enter a contest if I
don't have good chances to win. :-)

I'll contact the representative in Spain of the w3c, though, to
establish further relations, being the Apache Software Foundation a
natural implementor of W3C recommendations.

Most of the time the bus is moving I'm in the States (from Nov 10th to
25th) in ApacheCON or related activity in California. I like Gijon a
lot, though (I got to the Semana Negra this year, don't ask how, and I
enjoyed the city a lot, a lovely place with lovely people).

Thanks for the hint and regards
