Dear all,

as you may have seen from the last message, we need some support on  
website/wiki/blog maintenance and legal issues:

either asking/motivating people to write posts or by interviewing people  
and writing the posts herself.

http://okfn.org/ per year.

Position: Website/Wiki curator (may be several persons)
Description: watch Wiki, Blog, Telco minutes and update the main pages on  
http://linguistics.okfn.org such as "Home, Problem statement, Resources,  
Get Involved". Contacts OKFN for layout help and fixes. Not responsible  
for Blog posts as such. 	
Goal: Website is up to date

Position: Contact person on legal issues
Description: give advice on legal issues by pointing out relevant  
literature, where to find actual help or to give some orientation as to  
which practices are currently applied in the community to deal, e.g., with

If you're interested to get involved with any of these (or other) tasks,  
you can provide expertise on these areas or you have another suggetion to  
support the goals of the group, please let us know by attending the next  
telco or writing an email to the list. We work load will be moderate to
