Well, I was going to be nice and wait 24 hours so all our friends in  
Asia and Europe had a chance to respond.  But why not take the best  
jobs while I can ;-)

I am happy to run refined card sorts or further documentation surveys  
to help with this effort.

Probably the number one thing on my list is helping to get 60+ module  
handbook pages going by working on that little section of the  
handbook guidelines.  Here's my campaign speech: I am open to  
suggestions, and I work like a dog if you just want tell me how to do  
it right.

I spend a lot of time building and tearing down sites so I'll be  
happy to edit or contribute my upgrading and navigation tutorials.  I  
have also done some videos for analysis in the past.  Sounds like we  
already have some leaders for this.

I'd be happy to help with block and navigation suggestions for  
information architecture.
