OK, so for some reason that made me think of Json, which reminded about a mail a few days ago on the "Re: rice paper background in trunk? “ thread that mentioned loading a package called JSON. So I installed it and to my surprise
`Json readFrom: (WebClient httpGet: ‘http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.1/find/name?q=Nanaimo,CA') content readStream`
returned a completely plausible result. Cool! Quick, I must add “JSon expertise” to my LinkedIn page :-)

Now all I need to do is develop a little understanding of what on earth it is all about. Pointers to very, very, basic doc appreciated.
