Cool The Free Software University

Hi you :-)

I wanted to drop by and let you know that we've been growing an idea on some social networking sites for a few days, gathered a good old set of community members and we're in the process of moving to our server to collaborate and build our learning environment (using Moodle). Here's an outline:

The Free Software University

The free software university is a project focused on creating an international free software learning environment for programming, design and technology.

All FSU project work will be released under the AGPL and Creative Commons licenses.

All FSU course material will be available under a Creative Commons license. No student will be refused enrolment to the FSU and no tuition fees will be charged.

There are no barriers to entry, simply a willingness to learn or teach. Instructors will be academically qualified - sourced form industry partners and volunteers, along with mentors with years of industry experience and numerous publications.

Being free.... doesn't make it easy!

The Free Software University

Hello Lloyd,

It is nice to hear about the FSU and any new developments in the free software movement.
I'd never heard of the AGPL either.
Took a quick look at the Affero.org FAQ's to try and understand this networking variation to the GPL.

You will find it nearly identical to the GNU GPL, with an addition of section 2 (d), which covers use of the software over a computer network.
Mind if i ask if you think section 2 (d) could be included in a later version of the GPL for the sake of simplicity ?
