[liberationtech] Could you help me build a Tech for Social Good course syllabus?

Hi Louis (and everyone else),

Let's change the question to say that I'm interested in resources
pertaining to everything you state below.

I've decided that the best thing would be to collect all of the resources
and put them online somewhere, probably on our new website.

Speaking of which, the status of the new website is that I'm waiting to
hear from Greenhost whether they'd be interested in hosting and helping us
develop it. If I don't hear back by the end of the week, I'll explore other
options. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks,
Yosem
