One question that wasn't resolved during the ed meeting was, where  
should we put it?

The general consensus was to put it in "Basic" in the object  
catalogue, since "Particles" was there.

Some disagreement about what the word basic meant:

basic = general ?

basic = easy ?

basic = fundamental ?

basic = I can't figure where else to put it ?

We might think of another category for both Kedama & Dr Geo and future  
"deep stuff".

Serious Play ?


... apps unto themselves ... don't know :)
