At least for me, I've filed some of your messages in this thread in
the short-list for things to think about for a while and then reply to
vs. those things that I reply to in shoot-from-the-hip-mode.   So, at
least for me, not lost -- just different timescale.

It's a hint to aspiring entrepreneurs in the arch community.  

I mean: build nodes or the software to implement nodes in the arch
graph and "get real paid" (--Mobey) for that.

"Monetize" in .com-com-boom-speak means roughly, "Ok, you have a
popular web site...... now obtain revenue."

Caution: chickens -- hatched -- counting, etc.
