Received the following e-mail from the Washington professor today:
Sorry to take forever to get back. I totally understand and wish we can take this opportunity. If I had more resources/time on my hand, I would. I think your idea is wonderful and you should not give up on pursuing it with some British folks who may be able to help. There is a wild guy who calls himself Cyborg in the UK (I am off-line typing this at a park so can’t Google and find his info) who may be able to help you with this type of requests.
I will now have to pursue the Oxford professor connection before trying Cyborg (whoever he is).
