I have also added a section for license agreements. I didn't realize the history. I agree that what ever we do should stay open and free to everyone. Isn't that was education is all about? :) I'm not as familiar with the licenses as many of you are though, so please add your thoughts.
> Regarding the virtual conference (I'll stop calling a WordCamp), I still would love to see something like that happen. I am glad to hear there are tracks at WordCamps around the country and will certainly keep my eye out for those that I can attend, but I know my budget is already gone for the year and unless a local one has an education track that is unlikely for me.
