I've gotten a great response from my post to this list about Team Phoenicia
and the GLXP effort.

I know I suggested that we meet at Noisebridge on Tuesday, but it seems
that I won't be able to make it for at least the next 2 weeks. Maybe when I
come back from my trip. That would be the evening of March 3.

In the meantime, I'd like to point folks to a few web resources related to
our team:

http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/ is info about the prize, rules, news, etc.

http://www.googlelunarxprize.org/teams/team-phoenicia is Team Phoenicia's
page on the GLXP site. You can check out our blog, videos, etc.

There's also a youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/teamphoenicia

There's http://teamphoenicia.org/, which doesn't have a ton of content on
it, and http://teamphoenicia.blogspot.com/ which is another blog, that is
mostly pictures.

If you look at these links, you will also see that we also have need for
one or more people with good PR skills, who can help bring some life to our
web presence ;-)
