[dojo-contributors] OpenRecord: the best thing no one's talking about

So as some of you may be aware, the Dojo Toolkit isn't the only project 
of the Dojo Foundation. We also are host to the the excellent 
OpenRecord project (http://openrecord.org). Since Brian and his team 
aren't really big into tooting their own horn, perhaps they'll allow me 
to do a bit of it for them.

OpenRecord is, simply put, the coolest UI for semi-structured content 
that I've ever seen. And by "semi-structured content" I mean "stuff you 
actually care about and not something your boss told you to care 

If you haven't taken the time to play with their demo, I'd like to 
encourage you to give it a whirll (and give it a minute to load):


Or check out the screencast:


And, of course, once you spend 10 minutes with it and understand how 
amazingly cool a bid-directional linking system on top of a 
semi-structured content store is, please drop Brian 
(skinner at dojotoolkit.org) mail if you'd like to help out. OpenRecord 
needs your help to become the defacto way to capture, slice, and dice 
the information you care about. There are huge opportunities available 
to make a difference on this important project, and I can vouch for the 
OpenRecord team being contientious, hard-working, friendly folks who 
are sitting on the coolest project no one has ever heard of.
