Robert, we desperately need a leader with vision. My failure at my
previous job assignment shows that Im not a boss type, but you are.
Please, Robert or Anders or someone, from this chaos accept the
challenge of reading the various ideas and suggesting a direction.
Let the rest of us agree to elect and follow this leader even if we
dont agree, kinda like real life, eh? Let us debate heartily but avoid
insult, for this will work better if we have inputs from everyones
field of expertise and everyones thinking.

In the next few weeks we could suggest visions of what we want
to do with a team-effort expandable web-accessible extropian
space exploration model. If we cant work it out here on this
simple problem, many of our lofty visions will likely stay just visions.
