Tell me about it, a very "interesting" couple / few years recently.

I'm scheduled to dig deeply into the 
better-binary-transfer/storage/operation side of things soon.  I believe 
that it would be good to pair that with an examination of the text side 
of things.  Additionally, I too have wanted and talked about a next step 
in the Unixen pipeline shell programming area.  Plus, I need to find a 
good path soon toward semantically tagged and other data for my main 
personal project.

I look forward to more input / feedback / thoughts / collaboration.
