Well, finally the completely obvious thing to do dawned on me.
And that’s about it really.
First up you’ll get the domain http://yourdomain.edublogs.org
Then you’ll get 10MB (initially) of completely free upload space… plus unlimited MySQL (i.e. posts) space.
And with the new version of WPMU you also get to choose any one of a number of bloody great WordPress Themes (just contact me if you want a particular one pre-installed). In a few weeks you’ll be able to edit them too!
Until the time that some philanthropic educational organisation comes and takes this over (that’s an invitation BTW!) this will be entirely supported by incsub and donations. No ads, no fees, no business model…. ahhh makes me smile :o)
So if you know any teachers, students, researchers, writers or ANYONE interested in education… let them know that they can start their edublog at edublogs.org.
This is gonna be fun!
