Hi Rod,

Obviously there is a conceptual link from your original iSpecies to the
birth and continued development of EOL which is arguably the original
iSpecies concept extended a lot further, with links to multiple taxonomies,
wikipedia articles, maps from many sources, BHL etc. etc. So I'm not clear
why you would reactivate iSpecies unless it is to prototype some aspects
you feel EOL is not currently covering (or could not, with a few well
placed suggestions). So I guess I am more interested in the philosophy of
what you are doing than the current realization as per the web site (which
is easy to criticise versus e.g. the equivalent pages on EOL). More info,
please! (and yes, I did see the iPhylo blog post).
