To-do List Manager

http://voo2do.com/ is a free to-do list web application that has some nice features, but it's not free software.

  • Is it appropriate for us?
    • There's no backup plan if the host goes down
      • With an open-source approach we could run it on our own servers
    • If they lose our data, there's no way for us to back it up on our own or transfer the data to another service
      • Could be solved with an open format

About Page

On the wiki, it's a draft for what will be published to the about page on the front page

  • Collaborations with groups (e.g. the EFF, PK, etc.)
    • What about IP-SJ?
      • "Intellectual Property for Social Justice"
      • Don't approve when corporations take cultural images/artifacts and use them for commercialization, however this may oppose the idea of free culture when they lock up culture to keep corporate hands off of it
      • We have never done anything to collaborate with them
  • Changes:
    • "Free Culture groups exist at nine colleges" links to chapters page
    • We'll refer to groups as "FreeCulture.org Chapters"
