Coffee is good, particularly with BIG eggs. :-)

Eventually, it converges on a public utility. 
It has to, not because of the organizations, 
but the nature of contract law.  Wait for it.

Dinosaurs beat the mammals every time until the 
big rocks fell from the sky and a lack of food and breathable air gave the 
advantage to small, furry, egg-eaters.

Kind of makes one long for the days of the Jacobins, no?  Every revolution
has its price. 
Practice has to drive standards, and not the other way around. Right now it
seems that stan..., er, recommendations are coming fast and furious, but no
one is listening. How could they? The cacophony is music only to the elite
few. Is it leadership or aristocracy?
I don't doubt the good intentions of the people driving the technology, but
I wonder if they're moving too fast to stop and look at how the peasants are
laboring in the field?  
Maybe if I had more coffee...
