Thanks, Finnacan. I, too, like the idea of using all available venues  
to discuss this. And I like the idea that questions and answers  
voiced here are archived for later perusal by us, or anyone who  
wasn't here at the time. And I'd like to see the minutes of any  
"live" meetings posted here and on the bard.ansteorra.org, for the  
same reasons.

But personally, I think we've still got the cart before the horse.  
We're talking about the mechanics of how a college should be  
structured, when we don't yet have a clear definition of what a  
college should do.

Earlier today, I wrote:

I'd still like to see a reply to that question from Robin before  
taking another step towards discussion of a college's structure.  
Let's please define "function" before we spend any more time talking  
about "form". Otherwise we're just spinning our wheels.
