Chris is very clear that you, the Scoutbase team & yes the Scoutnet team were all visionaries in what you achieved.
You guys were doing all that work as volunteers, when only the Geeks saw the vision and potential of the internet.
Now that everyone, including the dictators (Not a reference to TSA , but the trouble in some countries) and even Simon Cowell realise the power of the internet (he has a facebook page today!), Scouting using the net seem just so obvious.
My only cautionary note in all of this, is that it has taken TSA 10 years to realise it can use its army of VOLUNTEER IT professionals and Hobbyists alike to create/improve websites/web systems without always reaching for the cheque book, co-ordinated through HQ. I'm sure we have Wayne to thank for that
