This was posted to the Open Source for America lobby's Education
Working Group.  It asks about your involvement in the GNU / Linux (and
other FOSS) communities either as a teacher or a student, or both.

Be sure to check out Open Source for America web site if you haven't
already. A lot of well-known individuals and companies behind it.

I'm conducting some survey research in regards to learning in the
Gnu/Linux community. (The primary focus is 'legitimate peripheral
participation', apprenticeship, the 'Nordic model', and similar

I would be grateful if you could pass it on to the appropriate people.

Thank you,

Dear users of Gnu/Linux,

Do you use Gnu/Linux? Do you consider yourself part of a larger
Gnu/Linux free and open source software community? Whether you've just
starting clicking around in Ubuntu or you've been tweaking your kernel
for years, we are interested in learning about if, and how, you've
learned (and possibly taught) as part of the Gnu/Linux community.

As part of our graduate studies, we, Don Davis and Iffat Jabeen, are
compiling a survey of Gnu/Linux users and their possible learning
experiences within the context of the Gnu/Linux FOSS community. The
results of the study will be presented to other Education
Technologists and may further the education world's  understanding of
the Gnu/Linux community.

Please share your experiences via the following link:

Your assistance in distributing the survey link to LUGs and  Gnu/Linux
oriented forums is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

Don Davis and Iffat Jabeen
