This sounds interesting, and the timing couldn't be better. A new 
project (led by Larry Smarr) is gearing up and he would like to build 
a bunch of new AG nodes at a handful of sites around California. So, 
we are certainly thinking about how to improve, deploy, and support 
AG systems on a larger scale. I therefore look forward to hearing 
more about the retreat.
