I'm interested in contributing to something like this.

I have AI experience in a totaly different field (OCR), and do embeded
real-time systems programming in the real world (including some autopilot
programming). I once upon a time did some low-level 3D programming
(rendering algo's), but that was ages ago.

I'm interested in contributing to A.I, update + lag-compensation algo's,
progressive detail algo's, and random environment generation. I also have
some ideas on using RPG style skills and skill advancement in a FPS.

radeonlabs.... If there is demand, I'd also be interested in trying my hand
at tweaking radeon drivers for linux. Although I really like Python
programming, I've actually had heaps more experience with low level
assembler and C.

Oh yeah, I'm also very keen on helping facilitate common-code usage.
