It's worth comparing this page with the About pages of other organizations:

Initially we want our page to simply be a short introduction, but eventually we want to have pages on the history of the organization, and exactly what we do, as well as bios for regular contributors/volunteers and links to our chapter sites.

We also need to consider what belongs on this page and what belongs in the FAQ. -- Nelson 13:28, 9 Mar 2005 (EST)

court cases

We involve ourselves in court cases? We might react to something going on in the courts, but I don't really see FC.o as such getting involved in the courts, i.e. bringing suit against something or providing counsel. (We're obviously unable to provide counsel.) Diebold notwithstanding, that was before FC.o existed and I don't see it happening again -- an FC.o member might do something (perhaps backed by FC.o planning), but would FC.o? Or do you see us filing amicus briefs in the future? (Who would write them? I don't see a counsel of record anywhere...) -- Gavin 16:02, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

overthrow

That overthrowing line doesn't belong here... -- Gavin 16:04, 10 Mar 2005 (EST)

chapters

I move that we stop using the word "chapters." Chapters implies centralized: there's FC.o, everything else is chapters. If that was the way it worked, then local chapters should be "FreeCulture.org Swarthmore," not "Free Culture Swarthmore." I prefer the idea of FC.o providing resources for groups, the impetus for groups to form, communication tools for groups. FC.o, then, serves as the (inter)national face of local Free Culture groups -- emphasizing that FC.o comes from the groups, not the other way around. (Let's overlook that that isn't how it's been and instead focus on how we intend it to be.) -- Gavin 16:08, 10 Mar 2005 (EST) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 0 1 2 3 4 5
