Very exciting work, Bob! Thanks for sharing.  Wondering how easy it might
be to change the visual metaphor of the floorplan to something else.  One
hope that I had for the OAE portfolio environment (inspired by NYU's work)
was the ability for end users to easily upload and use any digital image
as the visual metaphor for a portfolio and then define hotspots that would
expose functionality similar to that provided in your example.  That would
give institutions, programs, and individuals to the select metaphor that
was best suited to their purpose.  In the short term, I imagine making
changes of this sort would require a developer, but it would be great if
we could put that sort of power in the hands of students, faculty, and
staff.  Thoughts?
