Wednesdays aren't good for me, but any time Thursday afternoon/evening
should be fine.
Re: locks in a hackerspace: that'll be a fun challenge.
Travis, I'm very interested in chatting about p2p digital archival. My
current interests are centered around the camlistore project (camlistore.org)
and Mozilla's nascent Firecloud efforts.
