Dear All,

As some of you may know, we've been reviewed as case study on the Second 
Edition of Rosenfeld and Morville's Information Architecture for the 
World Wide Web book... considered the bible for us IAs.

Nowdays they are working on the Third Edition of the book, and I'm 
giving them a hand on editing the chapter 21 "evolt.org: An Online 

I've run into some differences between the site that was reviewed then 
and what we have nowdays, and as you may also know, I have a bad bad 
memory, so I need some help figuring out how some things happened.

What's the current memebership count for thelist?

... for thesite?

The review goes back to the time when we didn't have a budget. As far as 
I can remember we now have to pay for (some or all?) of our servers on a 
monthly basis, and this is being successfully covered by donations (are 
there more important sources of funding?)

Is there a Steering Committee still in place? what are its functions and 

Member profiles on WEO used to display the author's article list and 
tips. This is no longer available. Was this something we lost when 
moving into drupal for lack of labor-power?

m.e.o. is no longer working. Why was this, lack of servers?

was it the same case with d.e.o.?

that's it for now, I may come up with more questions as I work on this.

thanks in advance for the great help!
