--Kermit Wies (talk) 22:16, 31 January 2014 (UTC)With plans to begin curating my Topic Circle in earnest, I reviewed the wiki home page to get a feel for how newcomers might first be exposed to the top-level Topic Circle discussion for Activity-Based Modeling. This Big Picture page will be of little interest to anyone already immersed in our discipline and I found the original content both too abstract and too detailed for easy digestion by the uninitiated. I copied the entire contents out into a Word document and significantly reduced, condensed and distilled the discussion. I hope you find the new version more concise and in keeping with the intent of linking this page to the tfresource home page.

--Julie Dunbar (talk) 22:20, 31 January 2014 (UTC)Excellent work and much appreciated. I put the 'old' content in as a place holder with intentions of returning to it to make improvements. I like what you've done and agree that it will be more useful to those who are trying to figure out what TFR is all about. Thanks Kermit!
