community. At the same time, any for-profit can borrow from the
good-work of others to innovate even more effective ways to help the

Such information can spur creativity and innovation in this field. If a
few (hundreds?) people are collecting and hosting this knowledge,
millions can use it all over the Globe.

If any of you are doing such research, please post links to your web
sites. At the web sites listed below you can see how we library such
links so that others can learn from our efforts.

Thank you.
