and I am pretty excited about that.
I think if we can brainstorm on the structure, naming and categorization and
freeze on a model, I can take it forward from there to do a couple of
iterations on the icons. Fred, I can share the icons as SVGs, can we create
a wiki where we could assemble all our ideas and production material for an
Also I would like to mention that this poster would not have been possible
without the support of Harriet and Amit at the Digital Bridge Foundation,
Reliance Communications, Mumbai.
