I've entered an item for OpenSearch: "Alternative Applications of OpenSearch for Science Data Search: Fitting the Pieces Together" at http://commons.esipfed.org/node/1515.

I already Yoshiyuki on the schedule to talk about where CEOS is going with OpenSearch.

Key question is:  should we just try to plan Pedro's idea for a hands-on code camp, or actually try to do it in a second meeting at ESIP. (This would logically be after our first meeting, which would represent a bit of an overview/background).

Comments?  Let's have some email discussion before our May 29 telecon..
