The CRIG is promoting interoperability of repositories with other services during a roadshow in the summer of 2008. It will be doing this by setting up a “Developer Lounge” where people will be encouraged to stop by and pitch their innovative technology ideas. The primary motive of this Roadshow is to interface repositories with other *non-repository* services for the purpose of finding out how repositories can better integrate in the current scholarly landscape.

Thanks to Ben and Dave you truly earned their $5000 prize over and over again (I'll be buying them beers in thanks for years to come). I think you can tell from this summary how much work was done and how this trip really changed our perspective on the way we operate within our small world of Academia. There is a larger domain out there and it is called the web!
Also thanks to Tim who really needs to move to the UK as he is a top bloke!
