Subject: [cc-community] 4-YEAR PLAN ideas for LibrePlanet/Students for Free Culture @Hampshire College
Reporting in from Hampshire College's LibrePlanet/Students for Free Culture Chapter, we're just getting our team off the ground and after a couple of meetings there's been lots of ideas and excitement (check out some pictures from student group signup day here ).
We made a huge list of ideas (pasted below) and started talking about who we needed to get in contact with and other things needed to make them happen. What we realized is that lots of short term efforts even over a span of years may not add up to a cohesive and forward-thinking plan.
IDEA: DRAFT A FOUR-YEAR PLAN!
We're going to imagine what Hampshire College would look like as an ideal free software and free culture friendly school. We want to consider what would normally be considered impossible to accomplish. Our first compilation of ideas will probably happen on Tuesday. Form there, we'll combine similar ideas, rank them based on difficulty, and see what steps would have to happen before the change would be accepted. Ideas like requiring free and open formats for all assignments, using free licenses for all copyrights owned by the school, and making as much data as possible open.
What ideas do you have?
Is this a thing that more groups could organize?
