Excellent, volunteers are always good.  Now we have two, because I was contacted last night by Sarah Bate, who is apparently already developing a networking site, called, reasonably enough, 'Facenet'.  She's got some local funding to establish it, so it probably makes sense to go with that; feel free to post suggestions about what would be useful and I'll leave it to Sarah to see what's feasible and announce when it's ready.

Wow, Christian, that is a wonderful offer!

Re searchability, I think it would be good to have key words to  
describe each person's research under headings. For example, this  
might be:

1. Methods: (choose one or more of)
		Other brain imaging (eg. DTI)
		Single cell
		Computational modelling
		Others: specify

2. Populations: (choose one or more of)
		Human adults -- typical
		Human children -- typical
		Aging / Elderly
		Prosopagnosia -- acquired
		Prosopagnosia -- developmental;
		Autism Spectrum Disorder
		Other disorders where face processing is affected
		Animals other than primates
		Others: specify

3. Theoretical topics: (choose one or more of)
		Holistic processing / configural processing
		...etc, etc, etc !!

If people think this general approach would be a good idea, they might  
care to expand the lists above (which are just based on what I came up  
with in 10 mins).

The general aim would be that, for example, if one wants to find  
colleagues or potential collaborators who do behavioural work on gaze  
processing in monkeys, or expression recognition in Autism, then  
keyword searching would be a useful tool for doing this.
