Re: [school-discuss] Do Something Dot Org

So we could probably set up something that would take the directory of software on our website and compile it into a pdf that could be edited for further distribution.  It might take a bit of work & time to get there (collecting screen shots, and some description editing), but it's definitely possible.  If you're thinking of starting a project for something similar maybe it would be a good point for us to collaborate on.

If Schoolforge members have resources to help advocate Open Source, the web site might be a good place to share them.  For instance, sharing slide shows on switching to Open Source via the web or references (like http://www.ncose.org/node/3 which was posted to the list a while back) can be very helpful. 

Laura -

 It is ironic that you referenced the Free Software for Schools publication because I was just talking with Donna Benjamin (co-creator) about taking it down because it is so out of date - it could desperately use the kind of project help being discussed in this thread.

On a positive note, we also discussed creating a Kickstarter project to automate the maintenance and PDF publication of this information.  Perhaps advertising such an effort could be part of Schoolforge's new information mission.

All the best,
