nice Op. Jay

also, keep an eye on #openmesh on twitter. looks like they will try and buy a satellite. I'm contributing ideas for tech., from afar (still, if they can help - got to push this) - strange bed fellows, I'm on my own. but I'm trying to add ideas to make it robust AND pushing to give it to an International Org., for full transparency -not US control.
it's an interesting read,
at least #borgboxgs1 comments ;)

anyone know of a good trusted Org. to run the SAT?

the US centric core group is probably ignoring common sense I think :(
note: Gary Jay Brooks seems like a good egg so far.  Shervin???

maybe more push from the international community would help.

it has good potential in the right hands.

to be seen...

Peace Brother
