I will not be able to attend this meeting. However, I notice that there is
an LGPL'd technology called UNO (Universal Network Object) in the project
that appears really interesting, particularly in light of the possibility
that NODAL might fit into that scheme as well. UNO forms bridges to COM, etc.
I am thinking as follows: suppose that OpenOffice were to be a platform of
choice (one of many) on which to develop the basis for an
OHS/DKR/HyperScope. Suppose, then, that NODAL became its file system (as
opposed to the present flat file arrangement), with full capability to
export to and import from any format that OpenOffice presently handles,
thus rendering OpenOffice into VirtualOpenOffice, one with "biceptual"
Now, therefore, for those of you who plan to attend, please gather all the
information you can and report back here.
