still struggling with a clear sense of organization for this reporting/sharing
process. I know what I want to do with my project and the theory

is my way of having this all make sense. [Note: spent the first
week after FETC getting course pages set up now that I have a clearer
sense of what I need to do. Much better sense of peace about the

some of the bigger issues. Below is the result of putting aside
the web pages and the quest for order. I used the journal to actually
pull together this stuff that has been rattling around in my head.

working on his doctorate and I have emailed with him once or twice.
He added a web-based component but is basically doing what I am
implementing. He has added a web component that I am considering.
Most important are perhaps the sample tools and structure for
