[wp-edu] Educational Focused WordCamp?

It¹s true, saying ³double you pee dash ee dee you² is awkward, but I think
it might be the more appropriate option in that it doesn¹t limit to MU or
WordPress as a learning tool (and also parallels this mailing list name
nicely!). I wonder if there would be a way to work with the great minds
behind WPMu Ed to migrate/mirror applicable content in a non-²deprecated
name space.²

I just took a look at <wp-edu.org <http://wp-edu.org/> > without the hyphen:
<http://wpedu.org <http://wp-edu.org/> >. Using that domain, we'd have to be
always repeating "hyphen" in conversation ;) Poor typists would wonder when
we started doing auto-translation.

<http://dev.wpmued.org/> seems to have an established function and sounds as
if it is focused on MU.

Also available (with neighbors):
