Andrew -
  There are pragmatic decisions to be made - e.g."Should the website 
  be updated with content "foo" now, or is it better to wait until 
  both "foo" and "bar" are available next week and update at once?",
  "What topics should 1net work on initially, and what is the right
  process for adding/dropping topics?", "What tools and mechanisms 
  (e.g. wiki, shared workspaces, etc) should 1net use, beyond just  
  the mailing list, for its collaboration efforts?"
  Unless we want Adiel as the acting 1net coordinator simply making
  the decision on all such matters (which is also an option, as he's 
  quite bright and capable :-), a 1net steering committee would 
  probably be desired.
