Hey Bill,

How's the Ed stuff going. I've been checking in at DrupalEd.org and 
watching your posts on the list, but am swamped with some cool stuff 
happening over here in Hawaii.

*Amazon Wishlist:* We're going to be building some proprietary stuff 
(just because it would only be applicable for us) on top of this, but I 
wanted to get a basic Wishlist API module so other people could build 
off that. It looks pretty easy. There is a kick ass REST service through 
AWS so you can just hit 
http://www.awszone.com/scratchpads/aws/ecs.us/ListSearch.aws put in 
WishList for ListType and jeff at amazon.com for Email and you'll see an 
example. Just need a Drupal Wrapper API using drupal_http_request() to 
get a list, etc. I've got a good handle on that one so I could probably 
take most of that in the next couple days and send what I have to see if 
you guys think something should be added.

*Friend's Activity:* What did you think of my explanation on this one? 
I'm thinking of more of a watchdog_user module or something that will 
have a watchdog per user and then want to flush out the most modular way 
to tell modules to log to watchdog_user on certain actions. What is the 
best way to implement this in hook_nodeapi(), hook_comment(), 
hook_buddy() need to extend Buddylist for this, hook_taxonomy() for 
tagging notices, hook_votingapi() need to look into this one 
more...Thoughts? This one needs more collaboration I think.

*ACL-Buddylist integration: *I'm not even sure what I would want to do 
with this one yet, so I'm going to defer this on my end.
