Have you thought of working with an existing opensource project rather
starting your own web site.

I have been analysing the OSS education communities and come the the sad
conclusion that very few are going to gain the critical mass necessary
to thrive;(

The four keys are

1. Technical knowledge
2. Educational knowledge
3. High quality product
4. Inovative product

If you are interested I am sure that there are many existing
organizations that would love your help. is greatly in need of teachers.  We already have plenty of
the theory folks.

edubuntu could also use the help.

It make me sad how many good education projects start and then die after
a few months.  Steve Hargadon <steve.hargadon at> ofK12 open
minds would be a good person to suggest a project.
