sounds great.

I'm not sure if you know about it, but there was, for a few years, a
similar resource, although it wasn't conceptualized as an experiment, as
far as I recall.  Does anyone remember what it was called? Was it
associated with the Chronicle of Higher Ed?  Was it mostly the
Communication discipline in the U.S.?
