2014 restart of New55

Things to do in 2014:

1. Assemble a new work group locally, in Europe, and Far East
2. Revisit all old vendor quotes, sales projections, and new suppliers
3. Revise the set of technical drawings
4. Prepare fundraising effort and execute

If 4 is successful, hire the production engineer, tool up, and start production. The supply of 4x5 film has to be revised and there are some new candidate emulsions yet to test.  Also there is the finalization of the receiver sheet substrate and coatings, which will take some time to finalize.

If the fundraiser falls short, wrap up the technical knowledge into some sort of open source format, and schedule a couple of handmade New55 workshops.
