Harry's Parking Lot



This page is the location where Harry begins planning for future projects and generally lays out his thoughts not necessarily related to current priorities.

Furthermore, it will act as a hub to coordinate communication with others through designated "parking spaces". These spaces will facilitate efficient discussions in which groups can much more easily stay on the same page.


Topics to consider:
