Passed-over by Google

Despite a valiant effort on the part of the indefatigable Kyle Miller, our bid to get support for our effort on the Emergent Transcriptions Initiative through Google's Summer of Code program was not successful.  Oh well...  We will not be deterred!  
Today, I met the executive director of the Alliance for Information Science and technology Innovation (AISTI), Corinne Lebrun, whose work on Digital Libraries may help us get this project fully funded and off the ground once and for all...  Let's keep our fingers crossed!
After that meeting, I had my first experience with a Passover Seder at the students' apartment here in Santa Fe, courtesy of Sam Drogin and his mom.  
Being passed over is not a bad thing sometimes!
