good to hear from you and good to see that you're still interested.
doyen has been discussed on the mailing list and we're hoping to
have enough support put together to get it ready to distribute 
at ISSAC 2006 (Genova Italy
i normally get asked to put together the CD in late may and it needs
to happen in about 1 week so doyen has to be ready to go by that time.

i'd like to see a simple literate program that we can include as a
running example of the idea.

i'm currently working my way thru a book called "Ajax in Action"
by Dave Crane, Eric Pascarello, and Darren James looking for details
of how to enhance a locally running browser/server/axiom. in a local
situation we can use modified versions of the hypertex browser pages
directly; we can call back to axiom to compute results, etc.

Bill Page has recently talked about writing the instructions 
necessary to install the whole zwiki/plone pile locally which
we could adapt to the doyen CD. we've already done the work to
set up a local server.

please copy address@hidden so others can help and 
please update the build instructions. your userid on
should still be active. 

there ia a page at
which you can modify to post the Doyen build instructions.
try publishing them there and i'll try to build a doyen from them.
