Hey All-

I'm Billy Meinke <https://twitter.com/billymeinke>, from Creative Commons;
I work with Paul Stacey as introduced above, but am located in San
Francisco, CA, USA.

My work in Open Education largely has to do with supporting grantees in the
US DOL TAACCCT <http://www.open4us.org/> Program, but I've also recently
been involved with CC's School of Open <http://schoolofopen.org/>, and am
leading the development of a series of OER-based
toolkits<http://cctoolkits.wordpress.com/> which
will be built by members of our global affiliate network.  Over the next
six months I'll be researching OER reuse/remixing (largely involving the
TAACCCT program) as a
fellow<http://oerresearchhub.org/fellowships/our-fellows/> of
the OER Research Hub at the Open University.

Open Education (in general sense) is my passion, but I also dabble in Open
Science/Access/Data.  I'm interested in exploring ways we can leverage the
open web to better communicate, collaborate and build awesome resources
together.  Looking forward to hearing more about others who are on the list.
