Hi Joseph,

was not online, but no time today to write a reply.
but ok, I'm here now ;-), you can edit the page and make some  
corrections or improve the presentation I began.
As I told you, this editing was a draft ready for a further  
exploration and writing. Most of things come out from copy/paste of  
various texts, messages, archives, etc. I have compiled along the years.

I'm sure that we can develop a better text and presentation.

Are you all ok to participate to the wiki ?
My proposition is to write a series of texts, based on interviews,  
archives' probing, etc. which can offer various aspects of TT :  
documentation, studies, essays, notes, reports, etc.
A large part could concern graphic (and sound) documentation (photos,  
videos, etc.).
Thus we can cross information (from different sources and references)  
and validate the outputs.
And the better, I think, it's to do it together...

sounds good ?

Joseph, to go swiftly, what are the parts you don't include within  
the Wikipedia presentation ?
I answer to your question below.

best and warmly
