Looks wonderful! Maybe add a bit of the "Harlem" work in progress, as a tease, too?

The site is now public, hooray! We have a few tiny wrinkles to work out with Ning and then I'll start spreading the word in ptv land!

best, Judith

So glad you joined us! Now I'm going to encourage folks to find a way to keep us all up to date, more detail -- my site has a section up top called "Professional Highlights," which I'm using for latest projects. Do you think we should ask everyone to add that, or something like it?
cheers, Judith
