Dear colleagues,

this message is from the so-called convener of the sdd group, who feels very guilty about his
incapacity to organize more and invest more work.

As you probably know, the topic of the group is very close to my interest, being also the topic
of my proposed thesis. However, in my current situation this seems to make it rather more
difficult for me. The GLOPP project I am leading here in Germany is over demanding my
resources, i.e. the project is in danger of failing. I can not keep the deadlines there, and I do
not find the time to continue the thesis work. So SDD has become part of a big guilt complex. I
would love to do more, but I am afraid I have not done enough for a long time now.

So, I will be at the TDWG congress in Sydney, and I hope we have a working group discussion
there. If anybody wants to take up the lead of the group, she or he will have my support for
that task.

I hope we can still use the time in Sydney for fruitful discussions!

Best wishes
