I am now creating wiki pages for (1) a basic explanation of climate networks, and (2) our new programming project to use climate networks for El Niño prediction.

I have copied _all_ of the relevant references and information from this thread to these two new wiki pages. In a few minutes I will start the corresponding two threads. So let's carry on those conversations over there, and leave this thread as a "quieter" place for discussing the meta and strategy issues related to Azimuth initiatives -- and as a place for spawning off new specific projects. Already it worked to spawn off an El Niño programming project!
