(2) the Portal, an on-line center for those interested in the history of science and technology, which will offer (among other things) 300 detailed annotations of history of science and technology Web sites and 10 major on-line dialogues with leading participants in the making of that history
(3) an active collecting effort of our own in our Memory Bank, which will produce at least 500 contributions
(4) a comprehensive guide to collecting history on line
(5) aggressive outreach to hundreds of other possible practitioners through personal contact, workshops, and consultancies, which will result in 50 new practitioners who pursue the collecting and disseminating of the history of science and technology on line
