Any questions?

Can you kick the forum of with some questions that came out of the session? I wasn't there, but interested in joining the conversation.

-Hi, the session was more about finding (at least the initial) answers than ending with questions - although I bet many of us had/have them! Discussion entry points are (link above wasn't working, fixed now) here and you can find some of the brainstorms in these photos Anu 13:37, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
