From page 39...
... The new lab should be a too} for doing science and engineering, not a sandbox. The lab and plans for its activities should be based on current projects and available tools, that are making existing tools and content work.
From page 40...
... Concentrate on enabling technologies and building communities rather than large-scale systems. Participants agreed that issues related to tools and technology in TT-enabled education could not be adequately addressed without also considering architecture, content, pedagogy, and the cultural environment.

From page 42...
... Rather than building a test-bed from scratch, we should build upon, and involve, organizations currently involved in related efforts. Our ultimate success wait depend on human and organizational issues.
