Have you ever wondered how all these awesome edcamps actually came to be?
Have you ever wanted a place to ask questions, before you even got started?
Maybe you’d like to plan one of your own – but don’t know where to begin (or, if an Edcamp is already being planned in your area).
Sure, the edcamp wiki is helpful, but, let’s face it … you need answers. RIGHT NOW.You could reach out on Twitter. You’ve even thought about contacting the Edcamp Foundation for help.
But wouldn’t it be great if there was a place where you could ask your question and get answers from experienced Edcamp Organizers, via email, almost instantly?
WELL … NOW YOU CAN!
Introducing … the Edcamp-Organizers mailing list!
It’s EASY! It’s FUN! It’s OLD SCHOOL!
All you need is an email address! You don’t have to join any Google Groups, remember to visit a Ning or some other website, or sign up for Twitter, Facebook or other social media platfrom. This is a good old-fashioned, CGI-script powered, text-based mailing list. You know, like they had back in the day. Before teh Interwebz got all graphical and stuff.
How does it work?
Simply go to this page: http://lists.edcampfoundation.org/listinfo.cgi/edcamp-organizers-edcampfoundation.org. Fill out the form. Submit it. Check your email for a subscription confirmation. BOOM! You’re added to the listserver – and you’re ready to go.
Then, send a message to email@example.com with your question, and, wait for a response from the community!
Want to BROWSE a listing of MESSAGES ALREADY POSTED? You can, of course! Check out the Archives.
Please note: like most listservers, this community will take a while to get moving. Initially, the listserve will be powered by members of the Edcamp Foundation. But the best part about a listserve is ANYONE CAN ANSWER A QUESTION! We plan to appeal to experienced edcamp organizers to join in to help others – the way they were helped when they got started. It’s all about paying it forward!
So, what are you waiting for?

See you on the list!
