To add to what Rebecca posted, I think it would be nice if we had a  
sentence or two from a few of the people on this list on

(a) what you understand under commons research

(b) what you expect from (or what excites you about) the upcoming  
commons research workshop

You can post your thoughts on this list, bearing in mind that we will  
take some of the quotes and include them in the iCommons Annual book.
