Thanks Yosem, and everyone else involved, for all this--the lists, the effort obviously spent, the sense of community and possibility. I'd like to help continue the effort and also contribute ideas on moving it forward. I do have visions of any future entity (in the plural?) but a) I'm travelling and, b) I'd expect things will move fast. Which leads me to the suggestion: that it would make sense to use a medium better suited to foundational discussions than a list, e.g., a wiki or similar forum.

But I was also happy because you have all expressed a desire to do more to promote Liberationtech around the world, so it is the start of a new one that may take Liberationtech to unprecedented heights now that it can operate without Stanford restrictions.

> You don't need to be a "techie." We definitely need tech volunteers for sure. But we will need people to volunteer to be moderators of mailing lists. We will need volunteers to help us tweet Liberationtech news. And we will need volunteers for things that I cannot even envision right now that you may be envisioning that Liberationtech should do going forward.
