XForms: XForms goes to Washington

To subscribers of the xforms list from spl@szechuan.ucsd.edu (Steve Lamont) :

As some of you may know, my group, the National Center for Microscopy
and Imaging Research, in collaboration with the San Diego
Supercomputer Center (now the National Partnership for Advanced
Computational Infrastructure or some such -- I can never get it right
on the first try) and the Cornell University Program in Computer
Graphics, is engaged in a project to tele-operate our 400 KeV electron
microscope via the Internet. XForms was chosen early on as the GUI
for this project.

As part of the Internet 2 festivities now going on in Washington, DC,
we yesterday successfully demonstrated for members of Congress,
Congressional staff, various interested diplomats, and, I believe, the
Vice President, Al Gore, our CMDA (Collaboratory for Micro Digital
Anatomy) system. We will today do so again for the media (our 15
nanoseconds of fame -- if it's a slow news day, look for us on CNN).

A large bushel of thanks go to Hacker El Supremo TC Zhao and Mark
Overgard for providing an outstanding and easy to use Graphic User
Interface platform upon which to build the CMDA software systems.
Many thanks, also, to the XForms user community which has provided a
wealth of input both in improving XForms and for goading me into
understanding this fine and useful package.
