Friday's CSuite Workshop was a success, with attendance by 14 network people from across Canada (from BC to Newfoundland) and the US, and several observers. The lecture sessions went well, with special thanks for Jamie keeping one step ahead of Andrew :-) The practical session had a few glitches, especially with administrative permissions, and X-terminals acting up, but otherwise went very well also.
Industry Canada announced, with a news release, [search for 7712 / chercher pour 7712] their support for CSuite as community networking software. In another action, a MOU was signed between Telecommunities Canada and Industry Canada that may provide additional support.
CCN, CSuite, and TC97 received exposure on radio and television.
We are looking forward to possible funding for further work on internationalization of CSuite, to increase the French and other language capabilities.

A decision is planned for next week whether to continue testing.
