Just wanted to say that we here at Sun have been very impressed with
Xindice and happy to be using it in our UDDI repository project, which
should be released early this spring as part of our "Web Services Pack."
I will also be using it in my Ph.D. project as the data store for topic
map-based ontologies as well as the research contents they map. (02)
Tom has been very generous in his assistance during our crunch periods,
and when I looked over his own home page at http://www.tbradford.org/
I realized that the OHS project would benefit from his participation
-- as he mentioned we have a lot of common goals. I've also put him in
touch with Lee, since Xindice and NODAL have some interesting overlaps. (03)

Ernst Martin comments in 1949, "A certain degree of noise in
writing is required for confidence. Without such noise, the
writer would not know whether the type was actually printing
or not, so he would lose control." (07)
