Wild Future Speculations

  • We model ourselves as a Centre for Innovation and Research in Open Source in Education (CIROSE) (of the liver) :-) or something like that.
  • services/consultation/development for NZ schools: wikis, eXe, Moodle, Elgg. Installation, support, development, advocacy, training, etc...
  • we become an essentially more sector driven and differentiated Catalyst style company (think more off the Elgg, Moodle, Drupal fusion company -- name - more research oriented, innovation driven, collaborative and international. Forge relations w. Australian Tafes, US sources? European? other funding ops, based on eXe reputation.
  • see this issue raised with Elgg:
