And now, there's a fourth phase that we're very engaged in. Those three phases involve certain kinds of technology innovation, but the fourth phase is resting on the web with web services, and its intention is not to transform simply one organization at a time or one project at a time, it's to transform society so that we can raise the bar with geographic consciousness and geographic knowledge to see what our human footprint is causing. And this is so transformational, because people don't want to mess up, they want to know what to do and they want to put the foot down in the right location, they don't want to mess up wetlands by intention, they want to design with nature.
