Re: [school-discuss] [Fwd: Which way to go?]

I don't know what type of applications you have in mind....but I invite you
to visit sns.internetschools.org

This is the home site for Shadow netWorkspace(SNS). SNS is an intranet (open
source software system) with a number of applications including discussion
board, calendar..... But it is also an application development environment.
We hope that developers will see it as a framework for building applications
and thus become a platform or utility for sharing applications being
developed across different school districts.

I'd be glad to discuss this with you via the list or via direct email if you
