Would you like to put your mark on the next Mailman/Google Groups/etc.?
E-Democracy.Org is plotting a design sprint for its use of the GPL open
source GroupServer - http://groupserver.org - tool that we use to host
local and neighborhood issues forums - http://forums.e-democracy.org -
in the U.S., England, and New Zealand. Zope-based, GroupServer uses Zope
3 style skins (about which our non-profit has limited understanding ...
hence an opportunity to make a difference with your skills).
We will be meeting in Minneapolis. The date of the sprint is contingent
on who steps up. The purpose of the design sprint is to focus on
developing a highly usable, yet modern "skin." Those who want to
participate on a virtual basis may do so now by watching the screencasts
and seeing what inspires them.

P.S. One nifty new feature that we funded (the main developers -
http://onlinegroups.net - are in New Zealand) is the ability to embed a
YouTube video simply by including a link in your e-mail or web post to
the forum. Very simple. Very easy. Example:
Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org
