A couple of people from free culture have two ideas in the works:
+
-
 
+
-
* '''1. a public domain search engine for students.''' We know that there are some sites like this in the works, but we'd like to create something student-friendly that will help people find, format, and print public domain books found on project guttenberg and the internet archive. This is a pretty easy site to make, but it needs to be something non-tech-savvy students feel comfortable with. So a lot of this will focus on aesthetics
+
-
* '''2. a paper repository and exchange.''' One of the worst things about an undergraduate's career is that the papers he or she writes rarely get seen by anyone beyond a grad student. If you're proud of a paper, why not share it? and if you're working on a paper, and want feedback, why not put it online for public comment? We want to build a paper repository and exchange that will do just that, which will allow readers to add commentary and ratings, and allow casual visitors to quickly find interesting, new, and useful papers written by their peers.

: Hopefully these ideas fit under the banner of the Summer of Content. We hope someone is interested in helping out with, or taking the lead on these projects (contact:bcb2114@columbia.edu)

* '''3. Hello''', we are a group of 6 people until now. Our base is Monterrey, Mexico, although we have people currently living in Argentina. The idea is to create content for kids in elementary school. We are going to work with the open source student group of our university. We want to know the specifications of the content that we need to create and anything else that we need to apply for the program.
