*News:* I am supposed to talk to people at the Laura and John Arnold Foundation sometime this week. They haven't said which day.

I have decided to lay out two projects for their consideration:

* The Azimuth Project
* The Selected Papers Network

Why two? They may be disinclined to get involved in environmental issues, but they seem quite interested in improving the practice of science, and the Selected Papers Network is relevant to that.

Instead of laying out a detailed proposal, I think I'll simply tell them what these two projects are aiming to achieve, what they're like so far, and how they could use help. Either one would be vastly helped by a single full-time employee!
