Today we'll be doing something a little bit different... Something interactive. We've talked a bit in the past about creating a DIY MFA Online Community and there seemed to be a good bit of interest. I started looking around online and checking out what options are available and started tinkering.
Originally I wanted to WOW you all by unveiling said community today but as with some projects, I sort of bit off more than I could chew and it was not to be. Let's just say my computer did not cooperate. There was hissing and spitting involved and it wasn't from me.
So instead of unveiling the community or posting about community, I'd like to open the floor to all of you. Here are some things I'd like to know:
First: Which type of DIY MFA community do you think would be best:
a) Yahoo Groups type of community?
b) A ning.com type of community
c) A discussion board
d) Another suggestion I might have missed?
Also, I need VOLUNTEERS! Regardless of type of community, there's no way I can keep up with iggi U here, keep teaching, finish writing my book and admin a community all by myself. Anyone interested in helping me run this thing (like as a moderator or somesuch)? I'm thinking a team of 2 people plus me would be a good start and we can always add more mods later if this thing takes flight.
Please share your thoughts below. I can't wait to hear what you all have to say and I can't wait to start this DIY MFA community!
