Well, thank you, I tried to come up with an interesting, workable solution.
Right now, computer science research is my second (night) job, so my income
doesn't depend on this project. My interest in this is almost entirely
voluntary. I do research in this way, and I find that various arbitrary
constrainsts of academia can be avoided much more easily.

As for my location, I live in downtown Seattle. The "we" happens to be the
members of the Tunes project, particularly those who chat in #tunes on
irc.openprojects.net IRC server. There are a few people I know personally
who are unrelated to Tunes, yet have expressed willingness to code.

Thanks for the interest,
