Regarding PHundamentals, it's certainly been a great resource over the years
thanks to the time and effort put into it, and the quality/participation of
the list members.

It has, obviously, stalled and become a bit outdated itself.  Picking them
back up would be a great thing, although time obviously is always the most
scarce commodity.  If someone would want to help picking them back up, it'd
be a great thing.

And in fact with today's Web 2.0 facey-spaces and twitter-books, perhaps
even more value would come.  As part of PHundamentals, we could also
construct an open source project to facilitate the PHundamentals process.

We'd just need some people (far or near to NYC) to help out... takers?
