What a great BOSC! It was a great chance to meet so many of the Bio*
developers and users.   I'm sure some more of the ideas from the various
BOF's will trickle into the bio* mailing lists. 

I wanted to announce that biocorba.org is up and the mailing list is ready
for subscriptions.  We will attempt to have some lively discussion about
where bicorba fits in the open-source bioinformatics tools world.  Our
primary goals are to 
- leverage the Bio projects code
- create platform independent systems for exchanging and manipulating
  biological information
- help establish standards (along with BioXML) for 
  objects and functionality within the separate Bio projects.

Hopefully the biocorba team will help establish further goals.
