Well, yeah.  I did ask what the plans were for Googlemesh (and
ApocaLISP) back in late November but I guess there were no plans and
then in early December he (and he) was mentioned passingly in a
different thread.  It's okay I just wasn't following all the threads
so closely because I didn't want to get spoiled.  I did say I was
doing that.

Oh one more thing: if Wolverine can be in the X-Men, the Avengers and
his own title every month and it isn't a snafu then having Googlemesh
going around  different places isn't a snafu either.
