Hi Jason,
I like this one best! But Frank is correct in saying that VisCom is 
overstuffed with work already (at least they will now get a chair that 
deserves this name).
So as an alternative - if you are prepared to chair WebCom - I would 
very much like to be part of your team and help doing some of the boring 
stuff. It does not matter to me at all whether we revive WebCom or 
create a task force within VisCom as long as we get the work done and 
organize the web site so that people not living in it as we do can also 
find what they need. I still have in mind that addressing what has been 
collected here would be the first thing to do:

Lets see what the board works out this afternoon. Any way I am prepared 
to support you.

I liked this one too, it fits in nicely with the slightly used Web 
Coordinator. :-)

Fine by me, seems like I am too deranged to use PT and the Wiki is more 
flexible for what we need to do now.

If you do not need the relative freedom to decide things within your own 
committee we might want to remove it completely. But as already said, it 
seems like Frank has some good reasons to keep WebCom in place.

SAC seems to be doing more lower level stuff so that merging WebCom with 
SAC probably does not make as much sense as I had hoped.

Best regards,
