So how do we get that exposure?  Actually, there are other mailing lists with
focusses more toward answering teacher's questions, such as lnxk12, k12linux,
etc.  I know that some of our members are on some of those lists too.  Folks,
do those other mailing lists get much traffic from teachers asking
implementation and utilization questions about Linux in the classroom?  If so,
could you help us by mentioning the seul-edu mailing list when technical or
application availability questions come up?  By the same token, could you pass
on questions we have that they might be able to help with, like our earlier
one about how many Linux desktop systems could a commercial software vendor
expect to see in schools (Teacher Technology asked this), or what software
schools are currently using (I asked this quite a while ago in an attempt to
find out what applications we needed to work on to make Linux viable in
schools, but only got three responses).
