    Update: Oct. 5, 2008
    Community development plans described below are in limbo for now. Below is a discussion about this from the EdTechWeekly#97 post-show. We will likely continue discussing  next steps soon.  In the meantime, we’d welcome any feedback and/or participation interest.

    In order to form a more sustainable community and establish an organizational structure that will preserve EdTechTalkyness while supporting scalable growth, we propose the following governance branches and positions, and send out a call for participation to all corners of the Interwebs. (Info about joining the ETT Team below)

    Eachorganizational branch of ETT will work as a team, sharing general tasksand ‘cross-training’, but individuals will have specific areas ofresponsibility. This structure will evolve and adapt based on communityneeds and staffing availability. Currently, EdTechTalk operates as anot-for-profit entity and as such, no one receives financialcompensation for any of these duties. Terms of office for the initialslate of positions is tentatively set at one year beginning Jan. 1,2009.
