Just thought to give a shout-out to some our editorial board, to let them know of some recent updates I did for 'Issue 0 (pilot)'.
Took the day off from work (easy when one works for oneself, I just had to ask myself for a day off. :)... get a few items done...
I created am improved layout and structure to help seed ideas and encourage submissions. I went through all the notes and ideas, laid them out best i could in this structure. (and as always, open to feedback and opinions :).
Hopefully, this will make it easier, and encourage people to add more entries and submissions. *hint* *hint* *hint* *poke* *prod* "Say no more* *say no more* *wink* *wink*
Nice job on the Template:Grassroots_group page.
I tried it out on OLPC Bellingham and it seems to work great! :)

wiki getting started
Yes, please merge the two getting started pages; anarchic with well-defined process templates is fine for now. Don't let that question deflect you from defining clean processes. --Sj talk 19:15, 15 February 2008 (EST)
Articles for Review : assign articles to one of several metaprocesses:
- Peer review (neutrality, length, &c)
- Licensing review (copyright, fair use)
- Other cleanup (wikification, categorization, name conventions)
- Deletion (transwiki)
looking for people to help plan the Jam
I'm a member of the Unicef's new media group at Columbia University (SIPA) and would like to volunteer for UNICEF's upcoming Festival for Global Youth Communication / Storytelling Hackathon on March 28-30th.
What a wonderful initiative -- I would be very keen on volunteering on the filming/recording/editing side. I'm a German / American freelance radio journalist with TV experience. I'm not a trained cameraman, but I could definetely help interview people. Please let me know if you need help on that side.

New main page design?
What were you thinking when you pushed Home draft live? There must be a dozen reasons not to:
- It has no content but the general news. Why would we drop the rest?
- You got rid of the mission *and* the introduction.
- You removed the core principles from the main page. To what purpose?
- I don't see any work on the new draft since late Feb, or any discussion on-wiki about the motivation for the redesign; while it is a nice thing to do, it's an opportunity for /active/ discussion, and certainly more than none
- The image is too large, and the page design requires a very wide screen. I've talked about large image size being a problem, with you and Tank, when the last redesign was underway..
While there are arguments to be had for a main page that is viewale without scrolling, I have yet to see one that is very convincing; and an inviting introduction should certainly remain.
