Sorry Tom, this was a quite long "in a while".

Well, this is *exactly* the problem: I constantly
end up thinking about TUNES; in particular, regarding
your current effort, about Tunes Distributed Publishing [1]
(TDP from now on) and how much it is *different* from the
current Web.

I had begun to write a long e-mail to you at least four
times. Each time I stop, thinking that what I wrote will
discourage your current effort.

"To boostrap FULL TUNES we need FULL TUNES", I think this
summarize well the reasons of our long paralysis.

So, there are no shortcut: we need to approach TUNES
one small step a time. And please: be NOT discouraged!

When time permits, I will begin a series of e-mails (one
is in preparation, subject: current mark-up languages and
a proposal for a quite different solution) with critics
of current situation AND pratical contribution, trying
to stick to one point and not diverge too much.


P.S.: please, do NOT delete or overwrite old content.
      Thank you!
