Hi Jeff (and good to meet you at ISMB),

It sounds pretty interesting, but just how do we find out anything
substantive about it?  There's nothing but a static page with sales
gibberish with no useful links at the URL you supplied, and most of the
google-derived web pages that might have pointed to something informative
have been 404'ed..  

Being a recent (re)subscriber I may have missed a previous substantial
thread - Do you have a summary or pointers to what BB actually is?
