Subject: Data Dictionary, etc.

It would be really nice to easily identify all new additions to the Journal, so that after a handoff the new owner could see at a glance what changed (the new owner would be responsible for removing the previous owner's "identification marks" after a thorough perusal). Traditionally this is handled by things like change bars or font changes. Does HyperCard offer any hope of such functionality?

A new major topic was added : the DATA DICTIONARY. This should be carefully extended as implementation details become evident.

A new piece was proposed: the air transport (ref.: OTHER IDEAS).

The suggestion of MULTIPLAYER GAMES was formally approved; that of multi-computer games was formally trashed. There are obvious implications here on STARTUP OPTIONS; an initial discussion on the subject was attempted.

The subject of CONTINENT GENERATION was expanded upon.
