      Massimiliano,

      Thank you for your reply to my letter about the Open Content workshop.
      I'm very impressed by what you're accomplishing http://www.bdaweb.net

      Yes, a "peer-to-peer" (P2P) approach is very relevant.

      I share your letter with our groups. Let's think how we might use your
      software! It seems that you are focusing on papers. How would this
      work with learning objects, for example, courses? Or with letters such
      as we are writing? For example, at our lab we have written 15,000
      letters and we are making them available at http://www.ms.lt

      I note also that you received funding from the Regione Emilia-Romagna.
      Andrea Mills's Italy Innovation Lab is in Piacenza and they might be
      interested in your project.

      What would be the next step in using your software? Yes, please send me
      a copy. Is there anybody here who would be interested to try out this
      software and help us understand how we might use it?

      Andrius
