[FoRK] Stephen's almost perfect ideas. (No, really. No flame.)

Just to be clear:
The previous post to which this is a self-reply is 100% sincere and utterly serious, perhaps the most so I have ever been or will ever be again on FoRK.
On that note, recent engagements here have been costing me a bit too much in the way of attention, so I think it's probably time to take another sabbatical of some uncertain length, maybe brief, maybe not. Certainly not out of any ill-will or anything else beyond a need to shift some resources to other purposes for a while. The cost of the level of engagement I've been maintaining lately is probably VASTLY less than most people would assume, but it's still non-zero. Even at negligible per-instance cost, it adds up. Time to repay some attention debt I've been accumulating elsewhere.
(The means of achieving temporary separation will involve preemptively marking messages to/cc FoRK already read for a while, so if you'd like to get in touch, please do so directly sans list. In fact that filter is already in place and active as of a few moments ago. But I value everybody in our little salon, here, and am not attempting to cut any ties. Love hearing from folks directly.)
By the time I check back in, I am mildly optimistic that Stephen will actually have solved all of the world's problems, if he actually puts his mind (and less mouth) to it. ;-) :-)
