Hi Bruce,

To answer your questions:

I have a general interest in Open geospatial standards so the list 
seemed like it may be of interest. I suppose I'm using it as a mechanism 
for keeping abreast of these things.

I don't have any inclination toward MOU's or the bureaucracy involved in 
creating standards so I avoid that stuff.

That's my 1/160th. :-)
