Very nice to meet you, virtually. I'm Urs Gasser, the executive
director of the Berkman Center. Together with a wonderful team at
Berkman (Rob, our research director, and Caroline and Laura, project
managers, cc:ed), I'm leading the Center's contribution to the review
process. We are very excited to be part of this important mission and
are very much looking forward to working with you.
Denise, many thanks for offering your help and support -- greatly
appreciated. We'll get back to you within the next few days regarding
an initial conference call.
