No, you don't need to clarify your position further.  I understand what you
are saying and I disagree.  Read the rest of what Isaac and I were
discussing.  He was missing a group from his definitions and I was trying to
make sense of "frontend" being that missing group.  ;)  IOW, both of us were
a bit confused .. ;)

That said .. we will need one rather large working group .. currently the
Monkey See Group as identified in the structure chart:

This will be a large group .. the one responsible for all development,
design and IA of all projects.  That said, I also mentioned some
of my initial ideas in my responses to Isaac.

More to follow next week when I return from Toronto this weekend...


("return from Toronto" .. that sounds odd .. after 33 years of always
"returning to Toronto")
