Nice summary, Neal.  Naturally, I don't agree 100% with everything, but interested in seeing how the discussion unfolds.  You conflated the future of Sakai with technical documentation.  That's interesting, but doesn't really focus on the Tech Doc problem.  The architecture of Sakai is distinct from how we document it, IMO.

This is a great example of the incremental improvements that open source enables.  Great analysis, I hope this leads to prototypes and testing.

I've committed to help reaching the beta phase on Stack Exchange by answering questions about licenses.  So if you have  question about third party use, how well a particular license plays with the ECL2, or anything similar, ask away!

$100k at $4/year is a bit daunting.  More than 20 years at that rate, though you might accelerate things with good investments.  8 to 10 % is very good these days.

One thing you might consider is a "rent to buy" option.  It's not quite the same thing as getting a loan.
I hate it when I hear of an interesting project and then never get any updates. It makes it feel like the project has, like they often do, died with not even a whimper left behind. But fear not my faithful reader, the dream i...

Well, that wasn't a years worth of savings only about 6 months. Well, technically I didn't really start saving until January. Also, I've more than doubled the amount I've been saving weekly in the last month. I might start teaching some CAD classes to make up the rest of the $20,000 a year I need to do it in 5 years with no return.  I thhink all in all I'm on track.

I attended the Spring Seminar let by Steven Toyoda at Mill City Aikido in March of 2013. It was wonderful experience. The mat surface is great for Aikido: yielding but firm. Facilities are good and include a shower. All around a great place to work out and have some fun.

After sampling many of the Chinese restaurants near Ithaca, this is the best one. Most of the menu items are typical of American-Chinese food. You'll find all the usual suspects. That said, they are well prepared, ample in size, and quite tasty. The pot stickers are good. Worth the trip.
