Yes, I just saw info on it... how exciting! How do we get our hands on it (since our tax $ paid for the project, I think.) BTW, I think the Bread Lab in Mt. Vernon is associated with a bakery up there. An excellent review of this bread lab, and Jones, is in Dan Barber's 'The Third Plate'... a great book : )
I hope Wes Jackson has heard about this!
