Hi Sean et al
Can you tell me what the timeline is on the two below?
I am happy to take on some of the evaluation work under 2 and will plan 
to work it into a lab class I am running this semester looking at policy 
implications of technical design.

On topic 1, I would suggest that we think about other models--both 
decisional documents, expert committees, etc. -- in addition to the 
morris draft for iding and working through privacy issues in drafts.

thanks and happy new year.
