    @Roderic Page: Cool! The EOL service works beautifully although I can't quite figure the search results. They're narrower than our search API and as far as I sampled they always include our "preferred" result, but I don't see a pattern in what else gets ruled out. I didn't see any effect of setting "Auto-match candidates with high confidence". One thing that might help people like me is pulling additional columns into the reconcile. (The data I played with had higher taxa and common names, etc.) I'm way to naive to know how much work that would entail. Nice service!

    @Jennifer Hammock: Let me know if it works for you. One obvious extension would be to support the "Preview" feature that Freebase has. Would need a little hacking using the EOL API, but could be done.

    @Roderic Page: Way to keep up, Roderic! I just trained on GR and was thinking there aught to be a taxonomic names service.

    @Carlos Garcia-Robledo: Carlos, I can't speak for the rest of the EOL, but for those of us here at the Smithsonian, we are barred from lobbying. That said, this is going to be a topic we discuss at our upcoming board meeting, where we will share what we see are the implications of SOPA/PIPA to EOL at a global level. If you would like to contribute your insights to be part of that discussion, please contact me directly at bcorrigan at eol dot org - thanks.

    Carlos Garcia-Robledo commented on "Rubenstein Fellows":

    @Bob Corrigan: Dear Bob, I am sure that all the EOL developers and the EOL director's office are thinking about potential implications if SOPA-PIPA become laws. Do you think that EOL needs to state a position regarding these law projects?. Is this going to limit the connectivity of EOL with sites out of the US?. Part of the curator duties would be ensure that each link/contribution by content partners accomplishes with the SOPA-PIPA legislation? or is this going to be one more duty of the EOL staff?.

    @Seena Narayanan Karimbumkara: Hello Seena, After joining the Rubenstein Fellows community the collection "Featured Rubenstein Fellow taxa of interest" is supposed to be included in your list of collections. To add any page to your collections you must go to the page you are interested, click in "add to a collection" (on the right top of the page), and them select a collection. The "Featured Rubenstein Fellow taxa of interest" is supposed to be among them. Have fun !

    @Seena Narayanan Karimbumkara: Hey, Seena- I didn't see a suspiciously random taxon in the collection. Did you remove it already?

    @Jennifer Hammock: Hey Jen..there was a problem.. I tried to add my favorite dung beetle, but it turned to be the wrong page on which I added it.. I edited the "Featured Rubenstein Fellows taxa of interest". Please undo the changes made by me. Thanks.

    @Bart C.: Hi Bart - it's easy (but perhaps not as visible as you might have liked).
    1. Go to the collection you added by mistake
    2. Click on the "managers" tab
    3. You will see "Communities that can manage this collection", and a link under it that says "remove"
    4. Click on "remove", agree to the dialog, and it's out.
