Tomoko;

I'm certainly set up for electronic distribution via a Web site, since I
already do this both for myself and for my clients (I'm a systems
consultant in my other life).  I'd be willing to step up to the plate on
this one.  I have my own server (actually jointly-owned between myself and
several other gents with similar interests) and all the technology "bells
'n whistles" to convert paper images to electronic form, or to convert
electronically-submitted images to the most amenable format for a Web site.
 If others donated a tiny amount of cash each, we could even try to get our
own domain name... (it's a hundred bucks U.S. for two years from the
InterNIC -- $110.00 if you use their new zippy registration process).

Now that I've (foolishly!) offered to do the Webmaster stuff and the
backroom processing of the images, what about the process?  And does anyone
have any ideas of how the site should be designed in terms of the "look and
feel"?  We also have to consider copyright questions -- regardless of how
anyone *feels* about the copyrights on their photos, this is the Web, and
if the photos are available on the site they'll be downloaded and possibly
re-used somewhere else.

Thoughts?  (And the reply "I think people on the Prairies have too much
time on their hands" is not allowed, having been already used, and also
being patently untrue...  ;-)
