Lead users. As you do not want to listen and talk to them, some
grassroots people have decided the safest was to reconsider the whole
user architecture, back to the IUI and ML-DNS. They probably are not
on the same wave lengths as both of you? Don't ask me.
My personnal focus here is only the IUI and ML-DNS architectural,
documentation and safe testing framework; and to try to keep some
liaison with the Internet stratum. This is juste because the
"Internet+" stratum is necessary multiservice menu synergy and
access, to multilinguistic support, and to my interest in the Intersem.
I therefore only listen to the requests and investigate how the IUI
could address them when the project matches my interest. I will know
better once my I_Ds are finalized, a PLUS software architecture
adopted, and some first prototyping achieved. Then IUI "slots" (smart
local operating tasks) from projects will be experimented. Only by
then we will know which projects have actually gone through and what
they bring. You know FLOSS, it may take some time before all that
preparatory process stabilizes. However, I have good hopes to see the
things running in my old age.
