My poor communication... I would not suggest external links, rather
archive technical references and link internally. Another function for
the 'project' could be a dynamic interface for browsing a PDF document
archive using keywords. A finite hierarchy of keywords could both tag
PDF's and provide a structure for a wiki-like dynamic information
system. The wiki-like system could provide the front end -- the living
summarization -- of the technical backend built of available documents,
case studies, personal research reports, etc.
