I'd love any insights or feedback on what a primer (last title was
"choosing and using open source software") ought to cover in 2012.

Hey NOSI friends,

Thanks to the generosity of IBM, we now have funds to update the NOSI
Primer, which was last revved in 2007 by Michelle Murrain, Amanda
Hickman, and many other fine folks.

We have started the the update, and the legendary Dirk Slater is taking
the lead on editorial. But we need YOU!

We are building the new version of the Primer using Booki and
FLOSSManuls.net in order to invite a more participatory and open
approach to this new version, and to make the document easier to
maintain and evolve over time.

If you have interest in helping with any aspect of the update-- writing,
proofreading, identifying case studies, playing FOSS curmudgeon,
localizing, anything -- please respond to me off list and we can talk
about how to get you plugged in.

And please share questions and thoughts here if you would like the NOSI
list to discuss.

I'll send some more context as well as the FLOSSManuals link in a few
days, but I wanted to get this invitation on folks' radar. We look
forward to hearing from you.

thanks & peace,
