Good luck with the talk.

This is a restatement of a suggestion I made above: the work at Azimuth is important enough that it deserves to be funded. So a non-profit Azimuth Foundation would be a good thing. I believe that a talented fund-raiser could raise a substantial sum for the Azimuth group and its cause.

Since I'm not the right guy to start a foundation, or to raise funds, a first step in this direction could be to do some networking in search of such a person. But I'm not this kind of social networking guy either :)

Also, I'm not saying that this would pertain to your talk at the Laura and John Arnold Foundation -- but its a thought that pertains to the long term future and energy level of the Azimuth project.
