Hi Kristof, and everyone,

I'm not too keen on the BeOS IRC clients.  If you really prefer IRC, recommend 
me a good BeOS client to try.  In fact, how about BeShare, AIM or Jabber?  
Unless I am doing art or music, I am in BeOS so I'd prefer not to rely on some 
non-BeOS communication method.

I don't mind trying to help with organization, but I think the needed and 
desired structure-parameters have already been asked for.  It just needs to be 
implimented.  More than that, we need to agree on a level of professionalism.

Oh, and I'm in the eastern US timezone.

Oh, Guy, you really should consider your role more like a boss at a business 
than as a "cheerleader."  Come to that, we're all cheerleaders, so we don't 
need that many cheerleaders.  We need a boss and workers.  What's needed is a 
task-master with a strict view on what professional work should look like, a 
list of requirements, a list of expectations, a list of definitions, etc.  I'd 
rather take this whole thing professionally; boss and work assignments with 
parameters.  Instead of a loose bunch of random acts of "art" held together by 
the name CDT.  This is supposed to be the OpenBeOS Creative Design Team, not 
just any old CDT.  Throwing a bunch of random Be-related materials at the 
community just isn't the best idea if the desired end result of OBOS is a 
recognizable, consistent and stable OS and image.  First impressions last.
