C.K. Ogden's work

Is anyone outside of Japan interested in Ogden's work in Basic English? I have long been a fan of Ogden's ( and Richards') ideas, but have never found a colleague familiar with them. Now that I have had the good fortune to become part of this cyber-community, I can look farther afield. Anyway, Basic English seems like a perfect springboard for collaboration. His books are hard to come by, but the basic and most important reference is now online : Ogden's Basic English

Barbara, yes I'm interested. The link didn't work for me, tho. Is this correct? http://%20ogden.basic-english.org/texts.html (that's a percent sign right after the two slashes)?
