Since we have published this article on LinkedIn we refer you there, please click here to read. We have also developed a draft for a concept paper.

What we are looking for at this time are:

  1. Determine who is interested and think this is a good idea.
  2. If you like to learn more, let me know and we can send you the concept paper.
  3. If you have any constructive comments or clarification questions, let us hear them.
  4. Finally, who would be willing to volunteer?

For more information about the initiator of this idea refer to my personal website www.mounirajam.com and my company website www.sukad.com.
